J. Anthony Lucas has written another Watergate

valuable book because he used more research in

Bernstein in The Final Days, a book that stresses color 
and personality of the Watergate characters 

But just to prove that it wasn't the man in the White 
House, but the happenings in Washington that 
provided interesting subjects for books, there's a book 
that IS about to be published concerning the White 
House s vegetable garden. 

Derek Fall, the gardener extraordinaire who planned 
!he layout of the executive garden, including row by 
row plans for carrots, lettuce and tomatoes is the 
author of the book. Now one can't argue that Mr Fall 
•sn'i qualified to write on the subject, but aren't there 
enough vegetables around the White House already?

Reorg bill looming on Beacon Hill 


Massachusetts Senate President Kevin Harrington 
has never been one to concede a political battle And 
so when reports surfaced last week that he has made 
drastic revisions in his reorganizatio.n plan for public 
higher education in the state, it came as no surprise 
Hamngton's first reorganization bill, introduced last 
November in the waning days of the legislative 
session, was killed without ever coming to a vote 
aided by Governor Michael Dukakis who branded ii 
elitist and vowed to veto it. 
Harrington then solicited recommendations from a 
faculty committee before drafting another version 
but this measure too received intense criticism at 
public hearings held last month around the state and 
Harnngton was forced to work out a compromise 

Time was running out; the beginning of the next 
fiscal year, July 1, was approaching and such a bill 
would have to be enacted before that date. 

At a closed meeting in his office last Wednesday 
Harnngton, the architect in 1965 of the present 
structure, outlined the latest changes in his 
reorganization scheme. 

This plan, according to the account in last Thur- 
sday s Boston Globe (a formal draft was unavailable 
as the Summer Collegian went to press), includes a 
new board of governors, billed as the "superboard" 
by cntics, and a single chancellor for the entire state 
system, but retains the present trustee boards for the 
five segments with only slightly reduced power The 
state colleges, the community colleges, UMass, the 
University of Lowell and Southeastern Massachusetts 
University are the five segments. 

The proposed 28-member "superboard", through 
the powerful chancellor, would determine policy for 
the entire college and university system, develop a 
statewide master plan, fix tuitions and fees develop a 
single unified budget and allocate appropriate funds 
throughout the system. 

UMass President Robert C. Wood, who had given 
his qualified support to Harrington's original bill is 
now among the avid supporters of the compromise 

Despite some opposition to elements of the 
reorganization plan by members of the UMass board 
of trustees, Wood expects to win approval of a 
general statement of support from them soon. 

Although the compromise plan has the support of 
some key leaders, Wood said of the agreement- "It 
can still fall apart. We haven't signed the Magna Carta 

Record review 

yet, but we're on the field of Runnymede" 

Behind the Harrington proposal, sources say is a 
definite move to allow Wood - a foe of the Dukakis 
administration - to stay in power longer by having 
the new "superboard" initially composed of in- 
cumbent members of existing education boards. 

Governor Dukakis proposed a rival reorganization 
plan in Apni whic.^ caiiea ror a 15- member Board of 
Overseers, handpickea by the governor, with absolute 
budget authority vested in the secretary of education. 
But this plan lacks the backing needed for passage 
according to Dukakis' own aides. Now, however, the 
revised Harrington plan is more appealing to Dukakis 
these aides say. 

Beacon Hill may also be falling in line behind 
Harnngton now. House chairperson Frank J 
Matrango (D-N.Adams) said last week if he had a bill 
that "I was concerned about and it had the blessing 
of the Senate president, I don't know who else I'd

reorganization plan has come from academia Both

Ji is a cause of concern that reorganization has 
taken this turn. Any new plan so quickly deveioped for 
reasons of political expediency must be the subject of 
the greatest skepticism by the faculty," Booth 

A statewide group of students attending in- 

sZlTr ° v'"^"' ''^^"^ ^'"^^*°"' '^ Public 
S udent Coalition, attacked the plan in a recent news- 
letter, claiming the Harrington fonnula reduced 
student participation, limited access to university- level ' 
institutions in the state and would narrow the range of 
programs offered at the schools. 

Newspapers also levied criticism on the latest 
version of Harrington's bill. In a miW reprimand the 
^Globe editorialized last Saturday that more 
refinement" of the bill is needed. Although the 
editorial agreed that reorganization was due. it stated 
that the new "superboard ... would have almost no 
checks and balances, and inevitably the policy 
decisions would reflect the will ... of the proposed 
chancellor." ^ 

Harrington, however, told the Summer Collegian 
Monday that the Globe infrvmation was "inaccurate " 
He declined to give the full details of the new 
amendments, saying only that the bin is now being 
drafted for evaluation by the Joint Education Com- 


This a reggae music 

While the inclusion of at least 
one reggae flavored cut per album 
is a current unwritten law in the 
music business, the best reggae is 
the "rude, rough reggae" played by 
the Jamaicans themselves. Like the 
brown weed of the island, the real 
stuff is hot and very tasty, over- 
coming your body and your mind. 
Bob Marley of the Wallers 
remains the most visible figure in 
the world of reggae, and, as his 
performances at the Music Hall in 
Boston definitively showed, he is 
about to become a true star of the 
music world. Energy flows from his 
dreadlocks as he whips his head to 
the slipping backbeat, the loping 

Rastaman Vibration (Island 
Records), the latest Wallers album, 
lacks the honesty and vision of 
other Waller albums, but will go a 
long way in furthering the career of 
Marley himself, with slight expense 
to the group, now relegated to an 
almost nameless, faceless back up 
set of musicians. The sketch of 
Mariey dominates the album cover, 
and his vocalizing dominates the 

Marley has written five of the 
album"s ten songs, but they are 
pretty shallow statements; par- 

ticulariy weak is the unfocused 
"Johnny Was". Bassist Ashton 
""Family Man" Barrett has come up 
with a decent, but unoriginal effort 
in "Who the Cap Fit" but, rather 
than whetting your taste, the songs 
pale and tire with replaying. 

The best part of this new album 
is Mariey's vocalizing, which is the 
equal of Jagger or Dylan. His 
accent and inflection make even 
the rather dull stuff listenable, and 
the great material, ""War", spine- 

Easily the highest point on the 
album and one of the big moments 
of their Boston show, "War" is an 
eloquent and moving statement in 
reaction to racism and repression 
I hat had a special relevance in 
Boston that day. 

It is a powerful speech Haile 
Selassie, the Lion of Judah, 
delivered in 1968, set to music by A. 
Cole and C. Barrett. Marley puts all 
he has into this performance and is 
worth the price of the disc. 

in a wise and perfect move, 
Martha Velez was able to get Bob 
Marley as producer of her latest 
album. Escape From Babylon 
(Sire). With Mariey at the control 

board and the rest of the Wallers in 
as back-up band, the l-Threes as 
back-up singers, this hit my turn- 
table with a lot of anticipation and 
left nie with a big smile on my face. 

Velez chose less political, more 
danceable material, and makes it all 
work well. Her album would serve 
well as an introduction to this 
growing phenomenon called 
reggae, and still cross over into the 
disco set. In fact, the best cut on 
Babylon's ""Disco Night"' which she 
and Marley co-wrote, perhaps after 
a night on the town to New York"s 
flashy clubs. 

Third World comes at Jamaican 
music from the opposite direction. 
On the first album. Third World 
(Island), Third World makes a very 
political statement with its music, 
while making fine music at the 
same time. 

The group of six men does not 
limit itself to reggae, but adds a 
solid shot of Phillie Soul into its 
singing which is very acceptable to 
ears not always accustomed to the 
Jamaican dialect. 

A few songs are too long, a 
mistake neither Marley and the 
Wallers nor Philadelphia's groups 

are likely to make. This overlong 
chanting reduces some of the 
effect of the lyric message. 
However, "Sun won't Shine", 
"Kumina" and "'Slavery Days" rise 
above this, and involve the listener 
in their music and experience. 

Reggae is not likely n fade away 
in the near future, it is a new music, 
a welcome addition to popular 
music at a time when so much is, 
nostalgic and unadventurous. 
Reggae music, when in the hands 
of its masters like these people, is 
music that is perfect for dancing to 
on these hoi summer nights.

Grass gains 
wide support 

\CPS] — Jack Ford is not the 
only one helping to remove the 
stigma from marijuana smoking. 
Slowly but steadily, legislation 
which would decriminalize the 
weed is gaining wider support. 

The ultra-conservative Oakland, 
California Tribune became the 
country's first major newspaper to 
endorse the complete legalization 
of marijuana. In addition, the Board 
of Governors of the California Bar 
Association agreed to support 
decriminalization in that state. 
California has already drastically 
reduced pot penalties, but the bar 
association's proposal goes one 
step fu.ther. It would remove all 
penalties for cultivation or 
possession of marijuana. 

Minnesota has become the most 
recent state to decriminalize grass. 
The new legislation reduces the 
penalty for simple possession from 
the status of a misdemeanor to that 
of a petty misdemeanor punishable 
by a maximum fine of $100, and 
enrollment in a drug treatment 
program at the judge's discretion. 
Under the new Minnesota 'aw, no 
records will be kept for offenders. 

The first walk-in registration for 
summer courses held Friday in 
Boyden gym went smoothly, and 
students did not have to wait in 
lines "more than three or four deep 
at any one time," according to 
Debbie Bernstein of the University 
Summer Session staff. 

Mail registration was pushed this 
year, said Bernstein, and con- 
sequently students attending the 
registration were mostly concerned 
with schedule additions, deletions 
and changes. 

About 1,600 students had signed 
up for an average of two courses 
each by the end of mail registration, 
Bernstein said, and 125 students 
had signed up for evening courses. 
More than six hundred more 
students registered Friday, she said. 
The next walk- in registration day 
will be held at Whitmore Ad- 
ministration Building from 9:00 a.m. 
10 1:00 p.m. on Friday, June 18. 
This is for courses beginning 
Monday, June 21, designated in the 
Summer Session catalog as Blocks 
G and L. 

As well as the many "traditional" 
courses being offered this summer 
for credit, the University also offers 
foreign study programs in France, 
Italy, Germany and England, where 
students can earn up to six credits 
while studying the language and 
customs of another country. 

Students for whom academic 
credit is not a priority, can also 
enroll in non-credit workshops. 
Admissions to the workshops are 
open, and persons 65 and over may 
register, free of charge, on a space- 
available basis. 

Workshops include such diverse 
subjects as Gravestone Rubbing, 
Acupuncture massage. Hatha Yoga 
and Hang gliding. All workshops 
are limited to "a number that is 
manageable and acceptable" to the 
instructor, according to the 
Summer Session Catalog, and full 
refunds will be made by mail if a 
workshop is cancelled due to

Rowan said America will have 
neither peace nor tranquility as long 
as 23 per cent of its white families 
and 59 per cent of its black families 
do not earn enough money to meet 
the federal government criterion for 
"an austere standard of living." 

The two hour ceremony started 
20 minutes late as university of- 
ficials waited until the stadium filled 
to near capacity. Only 60 to 70 per 
cent of the graduates actually 
attended the May 22 ritual, leaving 
large numbers of seats empty on 
the stadium's playing field. 

The graduates sat in reserved 
sections according to the major 
school from which they were 
receiving their degree. Students in 
the non- traditional section, which 
includes Legal Studies, University 
Without Walls (UWW) and BDIC 
(Bachelor's Degree with Individual 
Concentration) were seen 
scrambling around to find enough 
chairs for their section. 

When diplomas were passed out 
one student from BDIC had to 
borrow extra diploma covers from 
Engineering students when 
Associate Provost Robert 
Woodbury ran out of covers for his 
non- traditional students.

Students from the School of

unofficial honors as the most 
boisterous when referred to by their 
Deans as the "employables". 

However, UMass President 
Robert Wood took the time to 
mention that the four year college 
experience was more than a

"The measure of education 
should not be does it give jobs; but 
does it bring the light of general

"H ... E ... Double L ... 01" says 
the radiant voice at the other end of 
the telephone. Zulema, known 
affectionately as Miss Z, is the" 
name. And with an RCA recording 
contract as of September, 1974, 
rhythm and blues is the game. 

A beautiful black woman, Zulema 
upstaged a slew of bona fide Third 
World stars on the original motion 
picture soundtrack of "Save the 
Children." The live recording at the 
Black Exposition in Chicago 
featured Marvin Gaye, Bill WifRers, 
the Temptations, Curtis Mayfield, 
Roberta Flack and Gladys Knight 
and the Pips, and Zulema stole the 
plaudits with a stunning version of 
"This Child of Mine." 

Zulema has been a popular figure 
amongst scribes and disc jockeys 
for several years. In 1972, Miss Z 
received the Radio Announcers' 
Award as "ihe most promisina new 

artist." She fulfilled the promise by 
being named the winne. of the Soul 
and Biues Award as "Best New 
Female Artist" in 1973. 

Other Soul and Blues award 
winners that season were Barry 
White and Roberta Flack. 

Zulema will perform "A Salute to 
Women in Song" Friday, June 4 at 
8 p.m. in the Fine Ar:s Center. 
Admission is free with a summer 
l.D. Along with Zulema will be 
Skylight, a local gruup.

When in need, DIS 

Need help? "All the Help You 
Can Get," a directory of human 
service agencies in the Hampshire 
County area might be just the thing 
you need, according to Information 
specialist James Pursley. 

Pursley, along with staff 
members at the Direct Information 
Service (DIS) Project in the Jones 
Library, Amherst, has compiled the 
directory which gives information 
about public and private agencies 
that can help people in need. The 
services indexed include agencies 
concerned with alcoholism 
counseling, health care, retar- 
dation, alternative education, food 
stamps and welfare. The directory 
also gives information about 
emergency services and telephone 
numbers, addresses and in- 
structions for obtaining the service. 
The directory should be available 
by the end of the week, Pursley 

Pursley said 2,200 copies are 
being printed at $2 each, less than 
ihe cost of printing. The reduced 
pnce was made possible by a 

federal grant. The directories will be 
distributed through community 
groups, at the DIS office, and 
possible at bookstores, said Pur- 

He said profit oriented 
organizations are used in the 
directory only when no non-profit 
organizations exist for the particular 

DIS began in February, 1975, and 
was the brainchild of former UMass 
student Mark Cheren and Jones' 
Adult Service Librarian Bonnie 
isman. The service keeps updated 
listings on most community ser- 
vices, Pursley said, and sometimes 
acts as a follow up advocacy 

DIS receives about 1,60C calls 
annually, and is open for referral 
service Monday through Friday, 9 
a.m. to 5 p.m. in the basement' of 
ihe Jones Library, and can be 
reached at 256-0121. If dialing from 
outside the Amherst area, call toll

Nuclear power finds haven in Tennessee Vallev 

vs Servico] And thara is littl« anv/nn*. ,.=.« h^ c^ .. o_:._ .. - . ... „ , . . . •/ 

Wednesday, June 2, \976 

[Pacific News Servico] 

The nuclear power industry, 
facing rising public opposition and 
ballot initiatives requiring strict 
safety standards in California and 
several other states, has found a 
haven in the Tennessee Valley. 

The federal Tennessee Valley 
Authority (TVA) plans to have built 
17 nuclear reactors by 1985, mostly 
in eastern Tennessee and northern 
Alabama - nearly a third of all 
plants now operating in the U.S. 
Site clearance has begun near 
Hartsville, Tenn., for the fifth plant 
- projected to be the largest in the 
world - vfich General Electric will 
help build. 

And there is little anyone can do 
to stop them. 

No state governments or public 
utility commissions have 
jurisdiction over the federally 
owned sites. Though Congress 
could act, it voted only recently to 
increase TVA's borrowing limit 
from $5 to $15 billion. And TVA is 
free to proceed on specific projects, 
including nuclear plants, without 
congressional approval. 

Only the courts offer a realistic 
path for citizen opposition to TVA 
plans. Although the plants must be 
licensed by the federal government, 
no TVA plant has had trouble at 
that level. 

Edward J. Spitzer, director of the 
Tennessee Energy Office, says the 
TVA's ability to build nuclear 
reactors without political in- 
terference wilf make the region the 
"energy oasis for the United 

The federal Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission (NRC) recently 
completed a feasibility study of 
Tennessee as one of four possible 
sites for "nuclear parks" - heavy 
concentrations of nuclear facilities 
on one site. 

TVA spokesmen do not admit to 
an intention to develop an "energy 

oasis' for the nation. Yet their 
plans call for more than doubling 
their power output by 1985 - all 
through nuclear expansion. And 
the energy needs of the TVA area 
are not expected to increase that 

Observers like Dr. Ruth Neff of 
the Tennessee Environmental 
Council, a non-partisan information 
gathering agency, think the TVA's 
multi-billion dollar expansion plans 
make little sense unless they are to 
provide power outside the TVA 
service area. 

TVA is already the nation's 
largest electric utility, wholesaling 

power to 160 distributors (local 
utilities) and selling directly to 
federal agencies and large in- 

According to C. Ron Culberson 
of the Tennessee Department of 
Public Health, TVA's system of 
interconnections with neighboring 
utilities is only one step away from 
a national power grid. 

"And it's no secret that TVA 
wants to run such a system," he 
says. "T' .=3 their projections, 
which ier n high, could actually 
reflect a pl< nr.t-d excess to be used 
for feeding a national electric grid

Olympic boxing finals 
to be held at Vermont 

The University of Vermont, in 
conjunction with the Vermont 
Athletic Association, will host the 
U.S. Olympic Boxing Team for five 
weeks of training, highlighted by 
the Olympic Boxing Finals which 
will be televised by ABC's Wide 
World of Sports. 

The U.S. Boxing Finals, also 
referred to as the Olympic "Box- 
offs", will be held at UVM's Roy L. 
Patrick Gymnasium, June 26, 
beginning at 8 p.m. 

The Boxing Finals will determine 
the 11 amateur boxers to represent 
the United States at the XXI 
Summer Olympic Games in 
Montrealwhich begin July 18. The 
Olympic Gold Medal winners will be 
decided on July 31 in bouts at the 
Montreal Forum. 

The top 25 U.S. amateur boxers 
- the team that will arrive in 
Burlington, June 13 - will be 
picked after final tryouts in Cin- 
cinnati, July 2-5. The eleven weight 
classes (106, 112, 119, 126, 132, 
139, 147, 156, 165, 178, and 
heavyweight) are chosen from the 
National AAU Champions, National 
Golden Gloves Champions, U.S. 
Army Champions, U.S. Navy 
Champions, U.S. Marine Corps 
Champions, U.S. Air Force 
Champions, winners of the Eastern 

Tryouts, and winners 
Western Tryouts. 

The 25 boxers will train at UVM's 
Patrick Gymnasium two weeks 
before the "Box-Offs" and stay at 
the Vermont campus for three 
weeks after the June 26 event. The 
11 boxers emerging from the U.S. 
Olympic Boxing Finals will join the 
rest of the Olympic contingent July 
11, with the boxing competition 
scheduled to begin July 18. 

Pat Nappi of Syracuse, N.Y. is 
the coach of the U.S. Olympic 
boxing team, assisted by Tom 
Johnson of Indianapolis. Roland 
Schwartz of Cincinnati is the 
manager. "Matches with the Soviet 
Union, Great Britain, P'azil, Poland, 
Italy, Venezuela and others in the 
years since MunicK. (1972) have 
provided more experieo'^c r«i U.S. 
boxers under the Olympic 
Development program," said Matt 
Cusack of the Olympic Boxing 
Committee. "We expect to come 
up with a good team in Montreal. 
With 70 or more countries in the 
boxing Olympics, winners are 
obviously very unpredictable. The 
competition should be very keen 
and the winners should be evenly 
distributed among several coun- 
tries," added Cusack.

Gorillas eliminated 11-9 
in post-season play 


Picture this... you take a plane 
ride to a place you've • . ve- been 
before to play a game you are very 
used to playing at a place yoi, ve 
never played before. 

Then... you get to this place and 
walk in the door of the building 
your team is going to dress in. On 
one side of the stylishly modern 
Johns Hopkins University Athletic 
Department building foyer are the 
Athletic Department offices of the 
perennial lacrosse po'wer. On the 
other side of the foyer is the 
Lacrosse Hall of Fame. 

Baltimore, Maryland... in the 
heart of a lacrosse rich area that 
boasts three out of the top four 
teams in the nation in lacrosse. 

Johns Hopkins University has won 
more national championships than 
any other team in the nation. 
Hopkins has won the National 
Collegiate Athletic Association 
(NCAA) Tournament twice out of 
the six years it has been' in 

UMass... cruising into Baltimore 
on the tail end of the very finest 
lacrosse season in the school's 
history. With a 1C win and two loss 
record on the books including 
impressive victories against 
Syracuse, Cortland, Brown and a 
host of others, the UMass lacrosse 
team was very ready to play 
lacrosse. Many of the players on 
the UMass team had never even 
flown before and although that was 
of no real consideration it was just 


Scoreboard tells the story 

another one of the factors involved 
in the pysche effort the team and its 
coaches had to contend with. 
Maryland and the surrounding area 
is lacrosse country where people 
take their lacrosse very seriously. 

They didn't realize UMass was 
"up and there". 

And when UMass head lacrosse 
coach Dick Garber's Gorillas 
jumped out to an early three goal 
lead which they held at the end of 
the first period people were 
checking their programs furiously 
to find out who these guys were 
who were running small circles all 
around their hometown boys. 

Minute but mighty Micky Menna 
led the Gorillas on this day and 
everyone on the field for that 
matter as he dodged, dumped, 
assisted, and scored his way to the 
finest performance of an already 
quite fine year with five goals and 
one assist. Menna was relatively 
unstoppable whether covered 
individually or by two Hopkins 

Johns Hopkins had also come to 
play, however. And after most of 
the players on the team obsen/ed 
rather than participated in the first 
period the traditionally lacrosse-rich 
squad got their thing together. 
With less than a minute left in first 
half the Blue Jays had jumped back 
out front to their own three goal 
lead with a commanding blend of 
smooth and sharp offensive and 
defensive play. Led by the attack 
line of Rich Hirsch, Franz Wit- 
tlesberger and Mike O'Neil, 
Hopkins held what appeared to be a 
sound 8-5 lead at the close of the 

Apparently no one told Mr. 
Menna and his friends from the 
north about the lead's longevity 
though, because the Goriligs came 
out in the second half and tied the 
game in less than a minute with 
Menna scoring two goals. 

Then, what was basically an 
offensive game turned into a 
defensive one especially for UMass 

as does a dejected Ken AAichaud after the Gorillas 
were beaten by John Hopkins 11-9 In the closing 
minutes. (Photos by Jay Saret) 

as the squad held the potent 
Hopkins attackmen in check for 
almost 25 minutes while getting 
another score of its own from 
Menm. Hopkins finally got back on 
the bo.ird with six .minutes left in 
the game when Rich Hirsch tied the 
score at 9-9 and an overtime- 
anticipation hush filled the crowd, 
the stadium, and the press box. 

The overtime never materialized 
however, as Hopkins fired fast and 
strong in those final six minutes and 
the Blue Jays walked quickly and 

quietly off the field with an 11-9 
NCAA lacrosse playoff victory and 
a chance to advance to the semi- 
final round against the eventual 
tourney champ, Cornell. 

UMass didn't walk off the field 
quite so quickly or quietly. Basically 
that was because the Gorillas had 
nothing to run from or be quiet 
about. They had just come very 
close to beating the pride of 
lacrosseland. As Coach Garber put 
it, "Our guys didn't stand around

Palmer Field in Middletown, 
Connecticut was wheie it all ended 
for the UMars baseball team, as 
coach Dick Bti'j,-.uist's Minutemen 
were defeated iwice by The 
University ci Mai^e and eliminated 
from the ECAC New England 

Maine, which moveu on to 
play in the NCAA Northeast 
Regionals, topped UMass 4-3 in 10 
innings on a home run by Ed 
Flaherty the day after both teams 
had eliminated the University of 
Connecticut with opening day 
victories. Maine then defeated the 
Minutemen 4 ' - conclude the 
team's 1976 beaso.i at 24-13. 

UMass entered the tournament 
with a combined 0-4 record against 
the other two Yankee Conference 
teams and won the opening game 
of the double-elimination tour- 
nament by edging UConn 6-5 as 
Craig Allegrezza came on in the 
ninth inning to strike out the last 
two UConn batters of the game. 

Allegrezza was brought in by 
Bergquist to replace reliever Dave 
Tewhill, who had pitched well in 
relief of starter Tom Nigro. With 
runners on first and second and one 
out, Allegrezza threw several fast 
balls past UConn's Matt Hukill and 
Bill Crowley to allow UMass to 
watch th^ second game of the day 
between Maine and UConn. 

The Minutemen had taken a 3-0 

lead in the first inning before heavy 
rain forced a two hour and fifteen 
minute delay. UMass added a run 
when the rain stopped before 
UConn battled back to tie the score 
with a run in the fourth and three in 
the fifth inning. 

The Huskies were knocked out of 
the tournament on the first day of 
competition as Maine's Flaherty hit 
his first of two game-winning home 
runs and the Black Bears won 2-1. 

Flaherty connected again off 
reliever Allegrezza for a 335-foot 
shot down the right field line a day 
later to give Maine an extra-inning 
victory. Allegrezza had replaced 
starter Jeff Reardon in the seventh

Golfers set for NCAA tourney 

The UMass men's golf team will be 
traveling south next week — way 
south in fact, to Albequerque, New 
Mexico to participate in the NCAA 
championship tournament at 
Agawam Hunt Golf Course. 

Coach Fan Gaudette will be 
without his number two golfer 
during the previous semester of 
competition. Glenn Sullivan has 
turned pro since the end of the 
semester. "Glenn is now con- 
sidered a non amateur by the 

UbUA (United .States <jom 
Association)," Gaudette com- 
nented. According to the golf 
coach, Jim McDermott, the team's 
sixth man during the season, will fill 

in for Sullivan, joining John Lasek 
and Rick Olson. 

A year ago, the Minutemen 
qualified for the NCAA tournament 
in Columbus, Ohio and placed 
twenty- third in a 36- team field. 
Lasek and Olson will be making 
their second appearance in NCAA 

Three weeks ago the UMass 
squad outclassed all other op-

victory in the NCAA Division I 
qualifying round in Providence. 
The team's 590 two- day total was a 
record qualifying score as the 
golfers claimed New England 

Bobby Sanders, and Tim Diskin 
are the other two members of 
coach Gaudette's squad who will

without him in the fall, winning the

By winning the district cham- 
pionship, UMass qualified for the 
NCAA finals for the second time. 

According to Gaudette, this

Last year the Minutemen linksters 
failed to make the 15- team cut after 
two days of play.

was unable to duplicate his earlier 

UMass took an early lead in the 
game with a pair of first inning runs 
as Jerry Mondalto (5 for 12 in three 
games) drove in a run with a single 
up the middle after Dave Bertulli 
had opened with a single and Mike 
Koperniak had walked. 

Mondalto singled again in the 
fourth and when the UMass short- 
stop attempted to steal second, 
shortstop Russ Quetti dropped the 
ball after Mondalto had apparently 
been beaten by the throw. Mark 
Fontaine followed with a base hit to 
give the Minutemen a 3-0 ad- 

A pair of singles and three walks 
gave Maine two runs in the fifth 
inning and Maine loaded the bases 
in the eighth inning via a hit bnt- 
sman, a bunt single and a Flaherty 
base hit to centerfield. With none 
out, Bergquist called on Allegrezza, 
who got Mike Curry to foul out to 
first baseman John Seed and then 
ended the Maine threat as Dana 
Dresser hit into a double play. 

Maine tied the score in the ninth 
on Jack Leggett's single ?fter a 
walk and 

Flaherty's dramatic home run 
brought the Maine bench streaming 
onto the field to congratulate the 
right fielder. 

Maine captured the New England 
title and the right to advance to the 
NCAA Regionals as Barry LaCasse 
limited UMass to five hits and a 
ninth-inning run and Billy Hughes 
clouted a three-run home run off 
losing pitcher Jerry Erb. 

Hughes drove a 350-foot blast 
into the right field bleachers after 
Erb had walked Flaherty and 
Koperniak booted a ground ball off 
the bat of Maine's Curry. The Black 
Bears scored their fourth run in the 
same inning as Dresser singled, 
stole second and scored on a single 
by Leggett, who was six for nine at 
the plate for the tournament.

Inside : 

Wood given 
pay increase 

By Joe Mahoney 

Pay raises for UMass 
President Robert C. Wood 
and his top level assistants 
— passed at last week's 
Board of Trustee's meeting 
in Boston — brought 
stinging remarks from 
student, faculty and labor 
representatives on campus. 
Also passed was a $45 
dorm rent Increase for 
students In the fall. 

According to Howard 
White, Wood's 
spokesperson, the raise 
brings Wood's salary up to 
its $50,939 level of over a 
year ago, before Wood took 
a voluntary cut in April, 
1975 to $47,299. 

Carol Drew, President of 
Local 1776 American 
Federation of State, County 
and Municipal Employees 
(AFL-CIO), described her first 
response as "sonDething you 
couldn't print In the 

"In view of what has been 
happening to public employees 
in this commonwealth, this Is 
iust absolutely ridiculous," 
Drew said. "I thoroughly 
question how the governor or 
the Board of Trustees or 
Wood's office can |ustlfy this 
when they are paying some of 
the public employes on this 
campus at a scale iust above 

Speaker of the Student 
Senate Annette Guttenberg 
echoed this view In a student 
context, remarking: "With no 
merit pay raises for University 
employes for the last three 
years, with some 200 vacant 
faculty positions frozen and 
with the $45 rent increase for 
students, it ic both unwise and 

unequal for President Wood 
and his highly paid staff to get 

"The trustees' indiscretion 
in the use of state monies is 
simply adding more am- 
munition for the state 

government to continue 
slashing the university's 
budget," Guttenberg added. 
In addition to the Wood raise, 
salary increases were doled 
out to Senior Vice-President 

UMass President Robert C. Wood, will enjoy a pay 
raise as a result of last week's Board of Trustees 
meeting, bringing his salary up to at least $50,939, the 
level of a year ago before Wood took a voluntary pay 

University employees show 
concern over raise 

Last year, UMass President 
Robert C. Wood took a sym- 
bolic five per cent cut in his 
salary. This year Wood is 
receiving a pay raise that will 
make up for last year's 
gesture, and then some. 
University staff employees 
weren't as fortunate. The 

Collegian asked some of them 
for their reactions. 

"I believe he's making more 
than enough now. There are 
plenty of people here who are 
overworked and underpaid. It 
shows you yvhere their 
priorities are" said a secretary 
in Whitmore. 

An employee of the library 
had a similar impression. "I 
think it stinks. All these 
politicians are the same. They 
line their own pockets. Our 
salaries are worth twenty per 
cent less than they were a few 
years ago. I wish he'd (Wood)

Support your local vendor 

During the fair weather 
months It Is always very 
pleasant to walk into town and 
find the friendly vendors out on 
the sidewalks adding that 
special feeling to the downtown 
area. Unlike the more strictly 
operated commercial 
establishments, the vendors 
are friendly and usually have 
good conversation and in- 
teresting wares to sell— 
Burrittos, lemonade, and yes, 
even used records. They give 
you that free feeling, the less 
structured feeling that 
characterizes the college town. 
For one reason or another 
the vendors are fewer this 
summer than last but this has 
not stayed the hopes of *he 
local business merchants to 
banish the street peddlers 
altogether. Last night, at the 
meeting of the Board of 
Selectmen, they made the 
latest of the perennial at- 
tempts. This attempt of 
banishment took the form of 
revised regulations regarding 
street vendors, scheduled to 
take effect in two weeks. The 
regulations outlined here were 
unanimously adopted by the 
three of five Selectpersons 

— venaors shall be mobile 

—carts shall not measure in 
excess of four by six 

—carts must not obstruct 
pedestrian traffic 

—most vendors must post a 
bond with registration 

—vendors must now register 
with the police department 

—vendors must have food 
handling permit from the 
Board of Health 

The most significant 
problem presented by the 
regulations is that the Board of 
Health has the potential power 
to require that the food vendors 
pre wrap the foods they serve 
in a home base commisary 
before serving on the- streets. 

Karol Wismiski, Chairperson 
of the Amherst Board of Health 
expressed the fear that the 

food served by vendors in the 
central business district, would 
be exposed to excessive levels 
of lead in the immediate at- 
mosphere. This argument was 
to rationalize the interest in 
having the food pre-wrapped 
efore the vendors hit the 
streets. His argument was 
tenuous at best and left me 
with the sense that he could not 
document his statement and 
demonstrated little un- 
derstanding of the actual 
technical situation. In more 
frank terms, one got the im- 
pression that he dreamed it up. 

the common. 

Throughout the debate on the 
vending issue one got the 
distinct sense that the Health 
Department was not 

legitimately concerned with 
health standards, or that the 
town managers were not 
worried sick over obstructions 
to pedestrian traffic. Rather, it 
was evident that this was an 
effort by old buddies to do the 
permanent merchants a favor. 
The merchants said that the 
vendor's tax breaks and lax 
zoning laws were unfair 
competition, but for the 
greedy, any competition is 
unfair, especially the 
benevolent street vendor who 
is so vulnerable to these 

The future of the street 
vendors in Amherst is cloudy 
at present and the outlook is 
noi promising. Next time you 
are in town, stop to think how 
pleasant a touch the vendors 
add to the town. Give them 
your support, and remiember 
Mr. Atkins and his con- 
stituency come election time.

Furlough fairness 

In the state of Massachusetts, a 1972 law created the Prison 
Furlough program. According to this program a priso^r

Since its inception in 1972, the program appears to have been 
successful. Correction Commissioner Frank HaMrep^rts7ha??Se

In theory, the preceding statement Is a sound one, but theorv Is

There will be bugs in any new program, but that Isn't any 
consolation to the families of the five dead people. Obviously 
whoever selects the people for furloughs should make their 
choices more carefully. 

I agree with the Senate Ways and Means Committee in their 
call for res rictionson the Furlough Program. They have called 
for prohibition cf furloughs for those considered sexuallv 
dangerous and those convicted of first degree murder - thos^ 
convicted of second degree murder would have to wait 12 years 
foj their furst furlough. 

These measures are not too strict if they'll protect the innocent

The merchants of the central 
business district were 
represented by the Chamber of 
Commerce who emphasized 
that ninety-four of the Com 
merce members were opposed 
to the present form of street 
vending in Amherst. They 
expressed the fear that the 
central business district would 
be overwhelmed by rambling, 
unharnessed, street vendors 
and such "wild nuts and 
berriet" people. Selectman 
Atkins, wealthy proprietor of 
Atkins Farm Fruit Bowl, 
■suggested that the vendors be 
forced out of town by lumping 
them together in one space on 

To the Editor: 

I was astounded by recent 
newspaper stories that all of 
public higher education is to be 
reorganized by two persons 
whose scheme is yet to be 
disclosed to the public, but 
which is to be rammed through 
the legislature by June IS. For 
a moment I thought I was 
reading Texas and Louisiana 
newspapers. I think it simply 
outrageous that anyone should 
think he can treat the state 
colleges and universities in 
such a cavalier manner. 
In the firs* place, why all the 

Need to examine reorg 

rush? i suggest that we need to 
slow down a bit— to exanine 
the proposal (when and if it is 
committed to writing) and to 
debate its provisions in detail. 

Otherwise, great damage will 
be done to public higher 
education in the state. We have 
already observed some of the 

unfortunate results of cen- 
tralization at the University of 
AAassachu setts. Perhaps we 
should study these 'effects in 
detail before rushing into a 
massive consolidated of 30 
diverse institutions under a 

smgle superboard. Certainly 
no one can argue that this 
centralization has brought on 
either savings or efficiency at 
the University of 


This matter is of such im- 
portance that I hope all 
students, parents, faculty 
member, alumni, and fri<>nds 
of higher education in the 
Commonwealth will make 
their voices heard before it is 
too late.

Gladys Hardy. Lyton's salary 
was boosted from $39,840 to 
$41,000, Robinson's from 
$33,395 to $35,500 and Hardy's 
from $31,000 to $33,560. 

White claimed that each of 
these increases reflected 
"fairly substantially increased 
responsibilities". He also 
linked them to the board's 
approval of a general policy 
raising the maximum salary 
range for academic deans. 
Deans may now earn a 
maximum of $38,600. 

The raises for Wood's staff 
were listed as "equity in- 
creases" in the written 
material presented to the 

"They talked about equity, 
but I haven't heard any talk 
about equity and keeping 
faculty salaries competitive," 
commented Larry Roberts, 
president of the campus 
chapter of the Massachusetts 
Society of Professors. 

"I think its appalling. It 
shows a rather astonishing 
insensitivity to the fact that all 
the faculty and professional 
staff have had their salaries 

frozen without any merit in- 
creases for the last three 
years," Roberts said. 

No reference to the proposed 
raise for Wood was made in the 
written material trustees 
received at the meeting. Board 
Chairperson Joseph Mealy 
explained that one paragraoh 
had been left out of the 
documentation inadvertantly. 

Student trustee and Co- 
president for the Amherst 
campus Paul Cronin said this 
"inadvertance" caused him to 
believe that they (the trustees) 
were only voting to restore 
Wood's voluntary cut, and not 
for the pay hike. 

* Employees show concern 

address that." 

Another library worker said 
that she didn't know enough 
about Wood to be sure. "I don't 
know all the considerations. 
Does anybody know what 
President Wood does? Is he 
working for his money, like 
some people around here? If he 
is, he deserves it. But I also 

think if he gets an increase, all 
the little peons around here 
should get one. I can't see 
feisting about his pay raise 
until I know all the facts. When 
you don't know all the facts, 
you cannot penalize the man.

CHATHAM, AAass. (AP) — 
New Hampshire Gov. Meldrim 
Thomson refused to endorse a 
resolution by New England 
governors and eastern 
Canadian premiers to pursue 
mutual energy solurions. 

"It is dangerous doctrine for 
the governors and premiers to 
embrace," he said Tuesday of 
the resolution that was adopted 
by voice vote despite his 

Thomson's comments came 
shortly before the two-day 
conference of governors and 
premiers in this Cape Cod 
resort town adjourned. They 
planned to meet again next 
year in Nova Scotia. 

Much of the conference was 
devoted to discussion of 
energy- related problems that 
plague New England and 
eastern Canada. 

The resolution stated the 
governors and their Canadian 

counterparts agreed to pursue 
opportunities of mutual in- 
terest in energy resource 

But it also "insisted" that 
their respective federal 
governments more clearly 
define their own national 
energy policies" so that the 
governors and premiers know 
what activities they could

bring up his objections until 
after the resolutions had been

hold plans for a restaurant,

Small claims courts: Useful but unused 

By Je«n Conley 

Small claims courts are 
usually Inexpensive, efficient 
and flexible, but after their 56 
year existence In Massa- 
chusetts, they are still unused 
by those they were designed to 
protect - the consumer 

According to a recent Mass 
f HO survey in which 37 
plaintiffs (persons suing) suing 
through Hampshire County 
courthouse were Interviewed, 
small claims court might go 
unused because people simply 
forget they exist. Of thcne 
surveyed, 78 per cent of small 
claims court users heard of the 
courts by word of mouth. Only 
five per cent had heard of 
small claims courts through 
the mass media, and a quarter 
of those surveyed were 
generally uninformed" about 
the function and proceedings of 
the courts. 

— p.__ \>rs*M,^ «ti^k4. 

i K» H PLEASANT/MNietST 2S6 8810 

The courts were established 
'n 1920 In Massachusetts for 
resolving every day disputes, 
usually between a business and 
a consumer, without the ex- 
pense of a lawyer. Today small 
claims courts still handle 
mostly business-consumer 
disputes, with the consumer 
suing for a rip-off Item, faulty 
service or contract violation 
Another reason for the un- 
popularity of small claims 
courts might be their inac- 
cessibility. Although designed 
to be simple, efficient and 
cheap forms of justice, 31 per 
cent of those surveyed had to 
either miss a day or work or 
classes for their day In court. 
If the plaintiff does not appear 
m court on the day of the trial, 
the case is defaulted, that Is, 
immediately dropped. The 
case might also be dismissed if 
either the plaintiff or defen- 
dant is late for the trial. 

Another problem with small 
claims courts, says Steve 
R ider of Mass P I RG, is that the 
S400 limit on claims is "totally 
ridiculous." Any claim over 
S400 requires that the case be 
heard in a higher cour*, and 
Rider sees the present limit as 
unrealistic today. Mass PIRG 
recently initiated Senate 614, a 
bill which would raise the 
claims limit from $400 to $7jO 
but Rider said that bill, now in 
Its third reading, "is stucl< in a 
senate committee." Rider 
expressed confidence that the 
bill would pass this year.

however. Another bill. Senate 
613, which would provide 
Saturday or evening sessions is 
.alive once again after being 
defeated last year In the 
Senate. Rider expects the bill 
to pass this year as it has 
gotten the nod of approval 
from the Senate judiciary 

D.Tf!!? ^'"dlngs of the Mass 
PIRG survey were not all 
problems, however. 

For Instance, the survey 
substantiated the fact that no 
lawyer is "needed" in small 
claims court. It was found that 
attorney Involvement did not 
make any appreciable dif- 
ference in the outcome of the 

The survey also found that 
the average length of a case 
was 8.1 weeks, Including the 
time it takes the plaintiff to 
collect after the case is 
decided. The plaintiff usually 
had to wait about 3.7 weeks to 
have his case heard, but this 
figure is not representative of 
all small claims courts. 

According to Rider, larger 
municipal courts often make 
the parties wait one or two 
months before hearing the 

Another problem with small 
claims courts is that of un- 
derstanding the verdict when 
the decision Is mailed. The 
judge may either decide a case 
while the parties are still in the 
courtroom, or he may take the 
case "under advisement", and 
notify the parties of his 
decision by mail. But the Mass 
PIRG survey found that while 
every plaintiff surveyed un- 
derstood the decision when it 
was delivered in the courtroom 
even if they lost the case, none 
of the plaintiffs understood 
why they lost their case when 
the decision was mailed. The 
procedure of taking a case 
under advisement also 
lengthens the time before ttie 
plaintiff can collect his money 
if he wins. 

Suing in small claims court 
IS not a complicated matter, 
but again a lack of available 
information on procedure may 
explain why 31 per cent of 
those surveyed felt "confused 
and unclear" during their 
litigation process, according to 
the survey. Most said that 
specific instructions should be 
readily available and com- 
prehensible to users. 

AAany do not know, for 
example, that it is possible to 
waive the fee charged when 
tiling suit. It is also possible to 
mail the claim to the court 
instead of taking time off from 
school or work and going to the 
courthouse. Also, Spanish 
interpreters are available on 
request at the time of filing 
These services often go 
unused. T.iere are few places 
the information can be found 
If you wish to sue in small 
claims court, file your suit with 
the district court Clerk of the 
defendant's municipality

The Northeast Bypass, a 
road that would detour traffic 
out of the middle of campus 
and Amherst Center, has been 
officially tabled by the 
Amherst Selectmen, in a June 
1 meeting, the Selectmen voted 
to scrap any further plans for 
the road following the vote of 
the May town meeting. But the 
issue Is still alive In the minds 
of many people In Amherst and 
at the University. 

According to Nancy Eddy, 
Seiectperson and chairman of 
the selectmen, "The majority

Northeast bypass tabled by selectmen 

*■• of the selectmen approve of the DlannoH n ^^,.,m ^i ^-.. 

of the selectmen approve of the 
road but we must follow the 
direction set for us at the town 
meeting," she said. She did, 
however, feel that the matter 
will be given another chance In 
the Fail. 

"The plans and drawings are 
going to be completed since so 
much time and money has 
been spent on the project," she 
said. She 'strongly suspects' 
the town meeting in October 
will be asked to vote again on 
the matter. 

The safety of the public is 
one of the main reasons that 

the bypass was originally 

planned. It would close down 
the main drag through cam- 
pus. North Pleasant street, 
which thousands of students 
cross dally to get to class. A 
bikepath was also planned to 
run along the route which 
would have been the start of a 
major bike network throughout 
Amherst. Traffic in Amherst 
center would be decreased 
dramatically leading travelers 
around the town Instead of 
directly through It. It is not yet 
clear what the effect on area 
business would be. 

Miles SeaversI, owner of the 
Gaslight restaurant and a local 

resident, said he feels that "the 
same thing that happened to 
Springfield, Hoiyoke, Athol 
and Orange will happen to 
downtown Amherst if the 
Bypass goes through. "They 
died. Businesses closed up," he 

The Northeast Bypass was 
unique In many ways because 
of the planning that was In- 
volved. The citliens and en- 
vironmentalists planned the 
road and sold the Idea to the 
Department of Public Works 
and the engineers, it is usually 
the other way around.

the Town of Amherst located 
its new Fire station, at a coi-t of 
$750,000, at a strategic locatioh 
for easy access to the com- 
munity. Now that the bypass Is 
not being built, the location of 
the station will be studied. 

The opposition to the bypass 
has grown steadily since It was 
first conceived over seven 
years ago. The town meeting 
voted to approve of the plan 
then with a vote of 199-8. in the 
May meeting the bypass was 
defeated by 14 votes.

Integration works 
in Springfield 


— A special report b«»«ng 
released today shows that 
school integration has worked 
successfully In Spnng/ield 
because of strong leadership 
by the mayor and school of 

The report, made public by 
the Massachusetts Advisory 
Committee to the U.S. Com 
mission on Civil rights, 
examined the city's elemen 
tary school desegregation plan 
in the fall of 1974. While Boston 
was torn by conflict and racial 
violence over court ordered 
desegregation, the study points 
out that Springfield schools 
opened without maior 

Dr. Victoria Schuck, a 
committee spokesperson, said 
the report commends the 
school department for Its 
"unusual management and 
planning skills" in developing 
and implementing the plan. 
Under the program, the city's 
elementary schools were 
divided into six districts, five 
of which each contained one of 
the racially imbalanced 

The report showed that in 
September 1974, a total of 6,461 
pupils, or slightly more than 
one third of elementary school 
pupils, were bused. More white 
students, 3,833 or 59.3 per cent, 
were bused than black, 2,628 or 
40.7 per cent.

By Debbie Schaefer 

Many people depend upon 
the bicycle as their primary 
mode of transportation, but 
find themselves at a loss when 
their bike is in need of repair. 
Bicycle malrrenance can be 
quite expensive The Bicycle 
Repair Collective in Amherst 
offers an alternative to high 
priced repair shops, as well as 
offering advice and Instruction 
in repair and maintenance. 

The Collective is operated by 
four people in a garage located 
at 51 South Prospect St., and is 
a "worker's collective which 
repairs bicycles and tries to 
teach bike repair in a non- 
oppressive way. We try to de- 
mystify bicycle repair and 
make people comfortable 
about learning how to take 
care of bicycles," according to 
one CO op member. 

For people wishing to repair 
their own bikes, the collective 
offers the use of tools and 
garage space, as well as 
mechanical advice. Ac- 
cessories and spare parts are 
available at non-profit prices, 
and members of the co-op 
repair bicycles for patrons who 
request this service at nominal 

Free, one session classes are 
now being offered by the 
Collective every Wednesday 
afternoon at 4:30. Classes will 
run through October on a 
monthly schedule as follows: 

First and Third Wed. — 
Basic Maintenance and Repair 

Second Wed. — Ten Speed 
Riding Techniques 

Fourth Wed. — How to Buy a 

An additional project of the 
Collective is a "Parts Fund" 
which utilizes small loans from 
the community in order to buy 
and sell parts at low prices. 
This provides a community 
base for the collective as well 
as eliminating profits. By 
borrowing money from non- 
institutional sources, the 
collective is able to work 
within a self dependent con- 

The Bicycle Repair 
Collective is open from 
Monday through -Saturday 
from 10 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and 
welcomes anyone who needs 
bike repairs or simply wishes 
to learn more about their bike. 

The collective recommends 
that you check your tire 
pressure frequently. Under- 
inflated tires are damaged 
easily and make the bike 
harder to pedal. Check also for 
holes, bubbles, and imbedded 

Oil the chain frequently. The 
chain should look wet at all 
times, the collective recom- 
mends, and use extra light- 
weight oil on five and ten speed 
chains. Oil eats rubber, so try 
not to get any on the tire or 
brake rubbers.

Rte. 47, Sunderland 

Pacific News Service — 

What's the chance of being 
bitten by a poisonous snake in 
Washington, D.C.? 

Or of being killed by a plane 
crashing into the Stanford foot- 
ball stadium during a big game 
with Berkeley? 

Less than one in a million — 
or the same chance of being 
killed by a nuclear reactor 
accident, say advocates of 
nuclear power like former 
Atomic Energy Commission 
(AEC) head Dixy Lee Ray. 

With nuc esr power safety 
issues proposed for the ballot 
in states from Maine to 
California, such comparisons 
are now common. 

But as indicators of nuclear 
safety, they may be highly 

The oft-quoted odds of a 
nuclear accident are based on 
calculations contained in the 
government's latest nuclear 
safety study, known fis the 
Rasmussen Report — a study 
that has sparked controversy 
since a draft version was 
published in 1974. 

In fact, a study by the 
American Physical Society 
(APS), the professional society 
of physics, arrived at 
estimates of death and injury 
in certain cases as much as 50 
times higher than those in the 
Rasmussen draft. 

The Rasmussen group Issued 
its final report last fall, raising 
estimates on some con- 
sequences of nuclear accidents 
but not revising its over-all 
conclusions or methods. 

Like all computer print-outs, 
the results of risk calculations 
can be trusted only so far as 
the numbers put Info them. 
Two of the major groups 
critical of the $4-million 
Rasmussen Repori contend 
that the absence of certain 
crucial factors m the report's 
calculations automatically 
discredits the results. 

The APS and the Union of 
Concerned Scientists (UCS), a 
Cambridge, Mass. -based 
public interest group of 
scientists, engineers and 
lawyers concerned with 
technology's side-effects, 
charge that the Rasmussen 
Report failed to figure In the 
odds of unexpected or 
"outrageous" events — 
especially those caused by 
sabotage or acts of war 


No bosses, 


ADDY, Wash. (AP) — '{ 

don't think I'll get to the 
point of hating to come to work 
in the morning," says Chuck 
Taylor, who works in a 
magnesium plant— one where 
there are no bosses breathing 
down workers' necks. 

Taylor, who taught junior 
high school for V2 years, is one 
of 280 employes involved in an 
Aluminum Company of 
America experiment in worker 
self-government. The new 
Northwest Alloys, Inc., plant 
here has no foremen, no 
unions, and is run by worker 
"teams" who decide what has 
to be done and do it. 

"My father-in-law worked at 
Kaiser. It was the same thing 
every day. Here, if you have 
any ability at all you can use 
it," Taylor said. 

Social conscience was not 
necessarily what prompted the 
experiment, which Is also 
being tried in a Pennsylvania 
coal mine, a Tennessee auto- 
parts plant and by West 
German companies. 

"It's for the primary purpose 
of improving production," Carl 
Hudson, the Addy plant's 
personnel manager said. 

In its first five months of 
operation, the plant's turnover 
rate has been low and ab- 
senteeism is running a low one 
per cent. But it's too soon to tell 
if the experiment is working. 

"I'dsay three to five years is 
the shakedown period" 
Hudson said. 

The plant's managers 
caution that the method might 
not work everywhere. Workers 
were hand-picked from about 
5,000 applicants — only those 
willing to rotate assignments, 
doing both skilled and menial 
work, were hired. 

* Bypass 


was ret taken into account 
when the plans were made. 
The bypass would have passed 
very close to an elementary 
school and the width of the 
intersections the children 
would have had to cross 
alarmed area parents. Sylvan 
dorms would also be affected, 
having the traffic coming right 
up to their back door. 

But the environmental 
impact study made for the 
bypass saw it as a definite 
improvement for the area. The 
cost of this and other plans and 
maps, drawings etc. have 
amounted to about $400,000 
since the ground was first 
broken on the project, not 
Including the salaries involved. 

The bypass would have been 
constructed starting this 
summer. Now nothing can be 
done unless the State wants to 
take the land by eminent 
domain, much of which 
belongs to the University. It is 
unlikely that the State would 
proceed If the town voted not to 
go through with Its original 

According to Eddy, the only 
way that the closing of North 
Pleasant St. can occur is with 
approval from the town 

She said, "This will not be 
done. They left us with no 
alternatives but to live with the 

So the bypass has been of- 
ficially closad by the people of 
Amherst, but debate still 
smolders in smaller circles of 
the population.

The Sincage shop, decorated 
with bumper stickers that have 
been printed there, has been a1 
two different locations in 
Northampton, the present one 
on Olive St. and a former one 
on Main St. 

"The speed and convenience 
of the offset has caused a 
decline in the letterpress, but I 
think the Heidelberg is 
probably the best job press in 
the business," Sincage ex- 

Sincage, who has been 
working with presses since 
1923 when he was with the now 
defunct Kingsbury Press, has 
handled jobs ranging from an 
order for 25 business cards to 
political buttons to golf 
scorecards to a 400-page citv 
report. ' 

The Heidelberg, a press 
made in Germany, was the 
most popular until the rise of Mnnr snop that c

according to both printers. The 
Heidelberg woul'd cost about 
$20,000 today and the Miehle 
offset is comparable, ac- 
cording to Norm Newell. 

The offset uses an aluminum 
plate with the image burned on 
from a negative and utilizes 
ink and water rollers with 
which the plate comes in 
contact, dccording to the 
younger Newell. The let- 
terpress involves linotype or 
slugs of lead letters. 

Hamilton Newell, whose 
brother runs a Northampton 
print shop "as a hobby", 
became influenced by his 

According to Barry Moser 
proprietor of Pennyroyal,' 
tine printing" includes 
limited edition books printed 
on handmade paper and new 
editions of unpublished poems 
Moser describes his work as 
"printing as a fine art " "We 
don't reach thousands and 
thousands of people, but the 
market is good, although 
limited, ' Moser said 

Warwick Press of Nor- 
thampton does the same type 
of printing that requires hand- 
set type on a letterpress. 

Sales manager Morgan 
Parsons of the Gazette Prin- 
ting Company notes that the 
increase in ink and paper 
prices has affected some of the 
larger print shops. "We're part 
of a pretty competitive market 
and the price of paper doesn't 
always get passed on to the 
consumer because of the 
competition. This results in a 
reduced profit," Parsons said 
Gazette Printing, like 
Newell, IS a "commercial" 
print shop that prints labels 

through an ink roller and the 
image is inked before going on 
to a rubber blanket, where the 
term offset comes in" he ex- 

And it all goes beyond 
commercial printing. The 
Cooleaf Corp. of Northampton 
specializes in the manufacture 
ot cigarette papers. According 
to Michael Garjian of Cooleaf, 
the company has printing 
equipment for its private 
labelling jobs. "What we do is 
custom design cigarette paper 
booklets,-" Garjian said. 
■ Someone wouldn't come to us 
with a printing job," he con- 
tinued, "although we do 
promotional calendars."

( PNS) — For the price of $50 
to rent a small airplane, 
terrorists could attack nuclear 
power plants from the air. 

In the U.S. there are 
currently no laws preventing 
private planes from flying over 
nuclear installations. 

The danger of air terrorism 
is not new. In 1972 airline 
hijackers threatened to crash a 
Boeing 727 into the govern- 
ment-operated nuclear plant at 
Oak Ridge, Tenn. The threat 
alone required the evacuation 
of the facilities. Other such 
warnings from terrorists have 
occurred since. 

Nuclear plants have already 
been prime targets for other 
types of sabotage, much of it 
by terrorist groups. 

The Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission (NRC) and the 
Energy Research and 
Developmen Agency (ERDA) 
have acknowledged there have 
been 99 threats and break-ins 
at licensed nuclear plants In 
the U.S. since 1969 and 70 such 
threats of violence at govern- 
ment nuclear facilities. 

A worker at the Indian Point 
nuclear plant in New York 
admitted setting a fire that 
caused more than $5 million 
damage in 1971. In March 1973, 
a revolutionary group in 
Argentina stormed and oc- 
cupied a nuclear power In- 
stallation near Buenos Aires. 
Several bomb threats were 
called in to the Zion nuclear 
plant in Illinois, in 1974. 
Terrorists broke into the 
atomic plant at Mt«nts D'Arre, 
France and damaged the 
facility with plastic explosives.

During the past few months, I have been carrying a petition 
calling upon people to boycott light and chunk tuna, the purpose 
being to help stop the killing of dolphins by the tuna Industry. For 
the past few years, the environmental groups have been urging 
the government to enforce the Marine Mammals Protection Act 
which forbids the killing of marine mammals. The tuna industry 
was granted exemption pending modification until the mortality 
rate could be reduced to zero. Then District Court Judge Charles 
Richey declared that the law would be enforced as of May 31, 
forbidding 1he harassment or killing of dolphins until its impact 
upon the dolphin stocks are more clearly understood. 

The problem began in 1961, when the tuna industry changed 
from h.yjk and line fishing to net fishing. This method proved to 
be high.y successful and soon other nations began to do the same 
It uses the knowledge that tuna swim with dolphins for a little 
understood reason. When the dolphins are spotted, motorboats 
are lowered into the water and the dolphins are forced into a 
restricted area. A net up to a mile long and 350 feet deep is 
brought about the dolphins and tuna and then a winch begins to 
pull the load in. Some net adaptations have been made to allow 
some of the dolphins to escape. From an initial mortality of 
250,000 dolphins per year it has been reduced to 100,000. But when 
the court made its decision last month the tuna industry was 
ready. They complained that if they weren't allowed to set on 
dolphins, they'd lose a significant catch of tuna and put them- 
selves to a distinct disadvantage to other nations. They would 
also be forced to fish other stocks of tuna that would put those 
stocks in jeopardy. Other problems include the registering of 
ships under foreign countries. And the law is difficult to enforce 
since it would require an observer on every ship. So the dolphin 
kill could still continue, but illegally. Dolphins are being killed 
because they happen to be "incidental" to the tuna catch. 

We know that dolphins are extremely intelligent — intelligence 
of a different type, not subject to comparison. In other words, we 
are oriented towards manipulation because of our hands (no 
value judgment intended) and we are terrestial, depending 
heavily upon our eyes, in connrast, the dolphins' medium is 
water and although they can see, they depend much more heavily 
upon a sonar system so complex as to put our mechanical sonar 
to shame. 

Dolphins have a high level of communication and the outline of 
a social makeup of complexity is perceived. Though their 
communication is primarily nonverbal, they have shown an 
ability to socialize human sounds with an attending under- 
standing of those sounds. They express a high level of trust and 
fairpiay that most human beings still strive to learn. There is so 
much about them that we don't understand. With their sonars 
they can see each other's physiological emotional states because 
their vision can pierce the body much like an x-ray. 

Industry and perhaps the nation should suffer a bit 
economically and a ban on killing dolphins should be enforced. 

In response to the court decision, the tuna lobby has Initiated a 
bill allowing the industry to set on porpoise. Trying to push the 
bill out of committee into the house for a decision late in June is 
Robert L. Leggett, chairperson of the Merchant Marina of 
Fisheries committee. The name of the bill is H.R. 13865. 

The environmentalists have argued that this manner of fishing 
is highly unecological, threatening the tuna as well. 

The economic loss to the fishing industry just might not be so 
great when compared to the losses of the ocean's intelligent

Two gunmen in RFK assassination? 

Pccific News Service — 

The FBI nas released 
evidence from Its own In- 
dependent investigation of the 
assassination of Robert F. 
Kennedy that supports recent 
contentions that ntore than one 
gunman was involved in the 

Sen. Kennedy was mortally 
wounded in the kitchen pantry 
of the Ambassador Hotel in Los 
Angeles on June 5, 1968. Sirhan 
Bishara Sirhan was convicted 
by Los Angeles authorities as 
Kennedy's "lone and 
unassisted assassin" — a 
position still maintained by 
these authorities. 

The FBI evidence, consisting 
of reports and corresponding 
photographs of the crime scene 
obtained under a Freedom of 
Information request, clearly 
identify "bullet holes" in ex-

By Jean Coniey 

About 25 members of the 
Amherst Chapter of the Native 
American Solidarity Com- 
mittee and the July 4th 
coalition picketed outside 
Hampshire District Court for 
about two hours Monday to 
protest the jailing of four 
native Americans charged 
with killing two FBI agents last 
June in South Dakota. 

Darrel "DIno" Butler and 
Bob Roblneau, members of the 
Oglala Sioux nation and the 
American Indian movement 
and two of the four men 
charged with the killing, went 
on trial Monday in Cedar 
Rapids, Iowa. The other two 
men, charged with the killing, 
Leonard Peltier and Jimmy 
Eagle, are currently awaitina 
trial. ^ 

According to a report 
released by the Amherst 
chapter of the Native 
American Solidarity Com- 
mittee, the two FBI men. Jack 
Coler and Ron Williams, were 
patrolling the village of Oglala 
on Pine Ridge Reservation last 
June when a firefight broke out 
between occupants of a house 
In Oglala and the agents. 

The report said the agents 
were armed with automatic 
rifles at the time of the fight, 
and that a few hours later the 
'wo FBI men and a Native 
American man, Joseph Stuntz, 
were foumJ dead outside the 
besieged house. 

The report said the reason 
for the f ioht is unknown by both 
the defendants and the 
prosecutor in the case. 

A defense witness, Anna Mae 
Aquash, was mysteriously 
murdered last February on the

The trial of the Oglala four, 
Jordan said, "is a clear case of

He said a "newsblock" 
around the area of the reser- 
vations prevents news from 
coming out of the reservation 
regularly. As a result, he said, 
news supportive of Native 
Americans is often obfuscated 
and the media disseminates 
information fed to it by the 
government, Jordan said. 

Because of this, he said, the 
American people are given the 
wrong impression of what it 
really is to be a Native

Ork Alarm 

ST. EXPRESS: Energy To 
Burn (Columbia) — If the .lew 
Ohio Players album is as dull 
as It sounded. It means that the 
B.T. Express have finally 
outdone them. I hope I'm 
wrong though and in the 
meantime, Energy To Burn is 
a sure fire, skintight honey of a 
party disk. Salt's very own Ork 
Alarm was actually observed 
attempting the tricky Ork 
Alarm Shuffle while playing 
this hummer. But then again, 
we all know the old Orky has 
had too much rhubarb disco 
juice of late anyways. A very 
good album, but it ain't no 
Mothership Connection. (AB) 
CHARLIE: Fantasy Girls & 
S.S. FOOLS: S.S. Foold 
(Columbia) - The only thing I 
have to say about both of them 
is that they're Columbia's 
contribution to summer vinyl 
waste. Instead of releasing 
junk like this, Columbia should 
be releasing more Virgin 
Records artists. (OK Andy?) 
\ D-) 

ETHOS: Ethos (Ardour) 

(Capitol) - Since Starcastle 
has become so successful 
leaching, er-milking the Yes 
sound, why don't we try our 
own hands at it. (Only throw in 
some Floyd & ELP) Sorry 

boys, Starcastle can get away 
with it because they have some 
real talent in their bralnboxes. 
Ethos is strictly minor league 

GARFIELD: Strange Roads 

(Mercury) — The founder and 
composer thinks he's quite 
talented. I don't; I absolutely 
hate his voice — reminds me of 
Pavlov's Dog's dreaded Dave 
Surkamp, plus the material Is 
some Canadian vision of folk- 
rock. More like drip rock. (C) 
JANE: Jane III (Capitol) — 
Is Jane Germany's version of 
England's once great Wish- 
bone Ash? Almost. As a guitar 
dominated band, Jane is 
talented or in other words, they 
have the right chop«;. Wishbone 
Ash fans should appreciate this 
finely crafted waxing. Next 
time though, fhey should look 
towards their own country for 
some real inspiration. And that 
inspiration my friends, is the 
one and only Kraan. (B) 

BILLY JOEL: Turnstiles 
(Columbia) — Ever since his 
semi-hit "Piano Man", Joel 
has been Columbia's next big 
pop star. But it didn't work, at 
least — me thinks, until Turn- 
stiles. His other two albums 
had a few compelling songs,

Victim's wife finds 
past hard to forget 


BOSTON (AP) — Martha 
Salem is trying to build a new 
life, but ttie torment of the past 
nine months is not easy to 

Her husband, Ronald, was 
attacked with a baseball bat 
last August at a public housing 
project in Boston's Dorchester 
section. The 34-year-old 
Medford man was unconscious 
for four days after the attack — 
already "medically dead" — 
until doctors at Boston City 
Hospital removed his life- 
sustaining equipment. 

"I was hoping desperately, 
although I knew he was dead, 
that he would just try to take 
one breath," said Mrs. Salem, 
37, recounting her ordeal 

She asked doctors for per- 
mission to be with her husband 
the day the plug was pulled. 

"I told them my husband 
was beaten alone, and that I 
did not want him alone during 
this time," said the mother of 

She hoped, despite a one-in- 
a-million chance, that her 
husband might breathe by 
himself >vhen the respirator 
was shut off. 

Standing by his bedside when 
the equipment was removed, 
Mrs. Salem reached down to 
take her husband's hand. 

"I began to feel a pulse 
beating very fast and loud 
under my fingers. I stood 
frozen as it got faster and 
harder," she said. 

"I cried, 'Doctor, there's a 
strong pulse.' A hand gently 
touched my shoulders as a 
young blond intern said, 'Mrs. 
Salem, he's gone. It's your own 
pulse you feel.'" 

Siegfried Golston, an 18- 
year-old Dorchester resident, 
was convicted of the murder 
last month. The case, which is 
under appeal, was a landmark 
in U.S. judicial history. 

For the first time, jurors had 
to decide whether Salem's 
death was caused by an in- 
flicted blow that caused "brain 
death," or at the point when 
doctors pulled the plug.

"The truth riever lies." 


If the defendant does not pay 
within a reasonable time (2-3 
weeks), go back to the small 
claims court clerk. Fill out the 
necessary forms, and the Clerk 
will tell you how to hire a 
sheriff or constable to help you 
collect. The cost of the sheriff 
will be added to your 
judgement. It, along with the 
initial fee, will be refunded by 
the defendant when you finally 
do collect. 

If you still have trouble 
collecting, or it the defendant 
is in the armed services, ask 
the Clerk for help. 

By choosing to sue In small 
c-laims court, the plaintiff 
waives all rights to a jury trial. 
You are not usually allowed to 
remove the case to a higher 
court if the judge does not 
decide in your favor in small 
claims court 

The Mass PIRG survey 
showed that 65 per cent of those 
who had used small claims 
courts would use them again. 
This implies that these 
plaintiffs were satisfied with 
the decisions they received and 
the court's functioning. 

Small claims courts do work, 
if one knows they're there and 
how to use them.

Women s coach Albert 
joins the exodus

The exodus continues here 
and with it is going Carol 
Albert, former head coach of 
the UAAass women's field 
hockey and basketball teams. 
There is no department on this 
campus which has not lost 
numerous personnel during the 
past few years. Some 
professors, teachers and 
coaches have left because the 
money which was once used to 
pay for their positions is no 
longer available, while others 
have moved on to accept job 
offers that will better their 
opportunity to promote 
themselves in their respective 
fields. Albert has joined the 
ranks of those who have 
ventured beyond UAAass to find 
other institutions that will help 
them to further their careers. 
Coach Albert arrived at 
UAAass two years ago after 
having completed her un- 
dergraduate degree in physical 
education at Bridgewater State 
and while here at UAAass she 
received a AAaster of Science 
degree in exercise science. 

official, she earned a local 'A' Th« h..i,-«.*K.ii * 
rating in field hockey and wiTh comr>i?!hu***'" ""^^ 
received a national rating for ^nder aXh', hi *"^*;®" 
refereeing basketball from the pltiL »n ii 7 ^'''"* <>": 
National Association «f r,i"i: ^°f '"9 ^" ^^^ record last 

winter, the women were 

National Association of Girls 
and Women in Sport 
(NAGWS). She also chaired 
the Springfield Board of 
Basketball Officials and in that 
capacity administered 
practical and written exams to 
those attempting to become 
rated officials in the sport, 
according to Vivian Barfleld, 
assistant director of athletics. 

Albert excelled in pulling 
together and directing 
women's field hockey and 
basketball teams toward 
successful seasons. As the first 
woman to be hired into a full 
time coaching position, she set 
precedents for attaining 
winning seasons. 

In her two years here, Albert 
led the field hockey team to a 
record of 14-9-2, which is very 
impressive when considering 
the fact that the Northeastern 
United States contains the 
second strongest grouping of 
teams in the country, falling 
only behf

attained in the areas of 
coaching and officiating. As an 

Three make All-America; 
Garber named coach of year 

In post-season play this past 
year, the field hockey team 
placed third in the Eastern 
Association of Intercollegiate 
Athletics for Women 
(EAIAW), Northeast District 

seeded seventh In the EAIAW 
basketball post-season tour- 
nament and ended up placing 
an impressive third overall 

Active in sports ouisioe or 
the UAAass community as well, 
Albert is a member of the 
Northeast District lA 
basketball committee of the 
EAIAW and is director of the 
EAIAW-United States Field 
Hockey Association (USFHA). 
She has been the director of the 
College Sports Day field 
hockey games each year, and 
has been an instructor at 
Kathy Rush's basketball 

Unable to fully put into 
words the impact which Albert 
had upon athletics at UAAass 
and in the area, Barfleld kept 
repeating again and again, 
"She was just great" in an 
attempt to convey the 
dynamics with which Albert 
carried out her duties. 

In two years Albert molded 
two women's teams into 
strong, highly competitive 
clubs. The fruits of her labor 
(her successful teams) will 
remain at UAAass for the next 
couple of years to carry on the 
winning ways that Albert 
helped to begin.

The United States Inter- 
collegiate Lacrosse 
Association (USILA) an- 
nounced the selection of three 
UAAass lacrosse stars to their 
Ali-American team in 
Charlottesville, North Carolina 
Tuesday. The USILA also 
announced its choice of UAAass 
lacrosse coach Richard Garber 
as the Coach of the Year and 
the winner of the Francis 
"Babe" Krause award. 

The best the UAAass teams 
had done previously was last 
year, when Jeff Spooner 
received Honorable AAention. 
This year, attackman Fred 
'AAicky' AAenna, a junior from 
East Longmeadow, Long 
Island, made the second team 
All American and senior Bill 
O'Brien, a midfielder from 
f Lefittown, Long Island made 
third team All-American. For 
the second time in as many 
years, attackman Jeff Spooner 
of Setauket, L.I. received 
AAonorable AAention.

As for the Coach of the Year 
award he said, "That was 
unexpected. It seems you have 
to have a great team to get the 
award, but I'm delighted to be 
so honored." 

Garber receives this award 
for the second time, the first 
when his unknown UAAass 
team finished 1969 with a 10-0 
record and attained a national 
NCAA ranking (of 18) for the 
first time. This year, the team 
moved into post-season play in 
AAaryland, losing to Johns 
Hopkins in the last moments of 
the game, 11-9. The AAassa-

very successful year by being

at the University, commented 
upon his selection as Coach of 
the Year. 

"This season was a pleasant 
surprise. Last year we

promises to hold some sur- 
prises and fresh sounds for 
dancers and listeners alike.

Tax Fund) into the normal 
accounting and budgets 
system of the university, 
following the Board of 
Trustees' Budget and Finance 
Committee meeting of May, 

Chancellor Randolph W 
Bromery Is concerned with the 
amount of money being used to 
pay student and non-student 
salaries and consultation fees 
and feels the need for com- 
pliance with university policies 
and state and federal at 
firmative action guidelines, 
according to the minutes of the 
Trustees' B'jdget and Finance 
Committee meeting of AAay 19. 

The Trustees propose that all 
of the RSO (Recognized 
Student Organization) groups 
that are funded by SATF 
should comply with the ac- 
counting and auditing prac- 
tices of the regular university 
accounting system. There are 
presently 732 RSO groups, of 
which, 75 are funded by SATF. 

■ The situation as seen by Paul 
Cronin, co- President of The 
Student Government 
Association (SGA) Is that the 
Trustees want to put It all Into 
one accounting system so they 
can be sure expenditures are 
spent according to university 
policy. As explained further by 

rI°"Jl'J7^^ Trustees collect 
the SATF money so they are 
legally responsible for it 
There's a debate as to whether 
or not they should be legally 
responsible and have control 
over the money." 

On June 1, the RSO Office 

was told that the Incorporation 

of the SATF accounts into the 

University accounting system 

was to be completed by July 1. 

Armand Demers, business 

manager of RSO for the past 

nine years and acting coor 

dinator of Student Activities, 

stated that there is no way to 

separate SATF accounts from 

the regular accounts. Demers 

feels that all 732 RSO accounts 

would have to be taken over by 

the University.

Today in our advancing society 
there is a serious problem on the 
rise: the runaway children. More 
and more children are leaving home 
every day, about 600,000 per year, 
and there are perhaps thousands 
more undocumented cases. The 
typical runaway is 13 or 14 years 
old, though many older and 
younger children do run away. Even 
little children, ages 6 to 12 are 
turning up at the runaway refuge 
centers. More girls than boys are 
reported as runaways, pertiaps 
because there is m{> a fear .. lat 
harm will come tc a girl tn^ r, a 
boy in the saTie situation. 

Wealth and social itatu s ' ;o 
be no barrier ic crldr-n r. -i 
away from home, indeed, in r4--*-;t 
years, there has been a jecr^ .t m 
runaway Black children, while h^re 
has been an increase among ^'ddte 
class white families, and also 
among the upper class families. 
Statistics show May and June to be 
the months during which most xids 
leave home. Ironically enough, 
another prime time for runaways is 
just before school grades are 

In the 60's, nr^ny runaways left 

home either as a form of social 

protest or to become "flower 

children"; it was "hip" to run away 

from home and live with transients, 

proclaiming eternal peace and 

beauty. However, that's not 

generally the case today. Running 

away has become a way to avoid 

problems. A child or teen may leave 

home to avoid boy-girlfriend 

confrontations, school grades, 

social or peer pressures, or parental 

restric'ions. Often though, the 

underlying reason is the more 

important one. Many leave home as 

a result of increasingly difficult 

family relations. A child become 

estranged from the other family 

members and feels he can't turn to 

ihem with senous problems that 

come up. He feels so alone that 

!here is nothing to lose and 

everything to gain by leaving. 

One good thing in the middle of 
this mess is that most runaways are 
staying closer to home today than 
they did in the 60's. A lot of them 
have made living arrangements for 
themselves, and they tend not to go 
seeking the wide open spaces. Even 
better news is that 90 per cent of 
these children often return home 
within two weeks. 

Sometimes, upon returning 
home, they find that the problem 
they fled from has been solved. 
More often than not, though, this is 
not the case. Parents want their son 
or daughter to come home, but 
usually under conditions com- 
pletely intolerable to the runaway. 
The child soon learns that nothing 
has been changed or solved, and 
.hat they are even less welcome 
and less at ease than ever before. In 
a lot of runaway cases, professional 
counselling is advised but parents 
iake little heed, not wanting to 
admit that they are less than perfect 

People tell me that the traditional 
family is going out of style. No one 
wants to be a parent anymore, no 
one wants to be tied down to an 
inescapable situation. I think this 
trend is one of the prime reasons 
for the increase in the number of 
runaways. There's no reason to 
remain in a place when even the 
parents begrudge being there 
themselves. To stay in such a family 
IS only inflicting self-punishment. 

Perhaps today's runaways are 
more "throwaways" than 
runaways, abandoned kids who are 
emotionally" rejected, and whose 
first instinct is to reject the whole 
family life by running away. 




Deep echoes the well 

Runaway rejectio n 

Running away has become a 
form of self- protection to a lot of 
children today, protection from 
being hurt end unwanted. If a child 
could turn to his family or friends 
close !o home for comfort, he 
wouldn't seek his solutions on the 

On July 4 in Philadelphia the 
government and the media are 
planning a super celebration, a 
climax of a year of commercialized 
hoop-la over the birthday of the US 
government. If we don't want to be 
brainwashed by this Disney-style 
state celebration, what can we do, 
what attitude can we lake? 

In Philadelphia, at the same time, 
there will be a counter- 
demonstration, with the theme "A 
Bicentennial Without Colonies". 
This will help to set things straight. 
Its aim is to bring together all sorts 
of groups of working people — to 
say that the credit for the 
achievements of our society 
belongs to working people, not to 
the government; to say that the real 
history of the government has been 
10 aid Big Money in its exploitation 
of people, its repression of non- 
white minorities, its rape of our 
natural resources; to say that the 
system right now is rotten, and that 
a new revolution, a truly 
democratic, socialist revolution, 
must be made in the future. 

A key issue for the future is the 
crisis of U.S. imperialism. The 
government was badly defeated by 
the Vietnamese, and more recently 
in Angola. It is only a matter of 
lime: every white racist regime will 
soon disappear from Africa, 
meaning every friend of U.S. im- 
perialism. A primary focus of 
change now, more immediate and 
more dj ngerous to corporate in- 
terests, is the independence 
movement in Puerto Rico. This is 
one reason for the theme "A 
Bicentennial without Colonies", for 
Puerto Rico is perhaps the most 
brutally exploited colony in the 

What is Puerto Rico and who are 
the Puerto Ricans? In the popular 
imagination, Puerto Rico is an 
island that was liberated by US 
intervention in the late nineteenth 
century that we now "support" 
through large federal handouts. 
The Puerto Ricans, it seems are a 
lazy, tropical people who on their 
own can't make it in the modern 
world. They don't appreciate the 
modern factories we have built 
there, big-scale agriculture and big- 
scale tourism, gambling, and 
prostitution. Worse, these people 
migrate to the States and 
congregate in huge ghettos like 
Spanish Harlem where they live off 
welfare paid for by US taxpayers. 
Such thinking is a good example 
of a myth that has no basis in 
reality. The myth is "history", a 
rewritten and censored history that 
separates us from what is actually 
there. We're boxed-in by this 
history cut off from the world. The 
government, which is a switch- 

blade in the hands of big business, 
does this for areason: if we under- 
stood the actual history of the 
Puerto Ricans our comprehension 
of the forces controlling our own 
lives, here in the US, would deepen. 
Our formal relationship to Puerto 
Rico goes back to 1898. In the year 
prior to US intervention, Puerto 
Rico, after decades of struggle 
against Spain, had secured a 
charter of autonomy. This charter 
included the right to home rule, as 
well as the freedom to participate in 
all foreign policy decisions and 
tariff-law negotiations. And it also 
included another freedom: univeral 
suffrage. All these political gains 
were put into effect in November 
1897, and after elections, a new 
Puerto Rican government was 
established in February 1898. 

When the US military took over 
the island in July of that year these 
reforms were immediately 
obliterated. A US proclamation at 
the time stated: "US military forces 
have come to occupy the island of 
Puerto Rico ... this is not a war of 
devastation but one to give all 
within the control of its military and 
naval forces the advantages and 
blessings of an enlightened 
civilization". As a first step, -in 1900 
a law was passed ( the Foraker Act) 
by the US Congress in which it was 
established taat any legislation 
passed by the Puerto Rican 
legislature was subject to US veto, 
while any legislation passed iri 
Congress could be applied to 
Puerto Rico if Congress felt it was 
in their best interest. So the Puerto 
Rican people again lost control over 
their lives - a basic fact that 
characterize;, their relation to the 
US up to the present day. 

The long arm of US imperialism 
comes in many forms. It always, 
however, tries to disguise itself. It 
comes tatooed with dollar signs. 
The hand it stretches out is shaped 
like a dove. In the beak of this dove 
there's a small piece of paper with a 
message written on it. It says: YOU 

It attacks the indigenous culture. 
The US Commissioner of Education 
in Puerto Rico in 1902 stated: 
"Colonialization carried out by the 
armies of war is vastly more ex- 
pensive than that carried fooA^ard 
by the armies of peace, whose out- 
posts and garrisons are the public 
schools". From the beginning a 
new US-created school-system 
(paid for by Puerto Ricans) was 
established. English was sub- 
stituted for Spanish. US history 
was substituted for local island 
history. George Washington 
became the "father of the coun- 
try". Newspapers and later radio 
and television were completely 
dominated by US interests, US 
perspectives. This is how you rob a 
people of their dignity, drive them 
deeper into the echoing well of 
cultural schizophrenia. 

market and for local consumption. 
After, there was a rapid, destructive 
reorganization. Sugar was the most 
profitable product for US owners 
and in 30 years sugar production 
was increased 800 per cent. The US 
military has taken over 17 per cent 
of the land area for bases. Home 
produced food is now no longer 
available, and by law has to be 
imported (like everything else) from 
the US. At present we see the 
upshot of this development: Puerto 
Rico is the fifth largest importer of 
US goods in the world; 90 per cent 
of all consumer goods, including 
food, the Puerto Ricans use, are 
shipped from the US mainland; 
prices run at 120 per cent of prices 

These changes uproot people, 
transform their lives. The 
destruction of small agriculture has 
meant mass migration to cities, and 
then, because of unemployment, to 
the US mainland. It means massive 
unemployment, it means "over- 
population". US corporations see 
Puerto Rico as a "paradise" 
because they have tax-free status 
there, and labor is cheap and 
unorganized. They have been free 
to build huge refineries and 
chemical plants, and they plan a 
"super-port " for huge oil tankers, 
because these industries are 
becoming environmentally un- 
popular in the US. 

But the freedom enjoyed by 
business makes it impossible fqr 
Puerto Ricans to deal effectively 
with their problems. They have no 
minimum wage, they can't organize 
into unions, their unemployment is 
higher than in the US during the 
depression because they are not 
ready for machine-intensive 
production, and their women are 
undergoing forced sterilization. 
They are political subjects of the 
US government. 

This list of horrors could go on in 
length and in depth. The main point 
is this: the revolution of the Puerto 
Rican people is on history's agenda 
in this bicentennial year. The 
problems are being exposed as 
never before: at the U.N., at inter- 
national CO /esses, in the US itself 
(e.g. the Bicentennial Without 
Colonies demonstration at 
Philadelphia). The independence 
movement, led by the P.R. Socialist 
Party and the Independence Party, 
is rapidly growing, as is support for 
independence within the US. 

The "secret" history of Puerto 
Rico is one of resistence and 
rebellion. This history is culminating 
today. Our state department labels 
the activists and their organizations 
" errorist" and "subversive".

Over a period of time, signs of 
purposelessness and despair begin 
to appear. In Puerto Rico drug 
addicition has reached extreme 
proportions, in New York the 
number of Puerto Ricans in mental

The pain and the glory... 


Letter to the editor: 


This it the year of the great Bicentennial 
celebration, the birthday of our nation. Acroaa the 
continent people ceiebrata and nnarch in paradaa 
down main street USA to the glory of our great 
heritage. More locally, we celebrated Sunday af- 
ternoon with a great parade and featival in downtown 
Northampton. Thousanda of people lined the 
sidewalks, crowding the curbs, waiting cheerfully and 
eagerly for the marching throngs to pass their way. It 
was a gratifying sight that sort of made one feel good, 
to see so many people so happy. 

Soon the parade began and came marching down 
n>ain street much to everyone's delight. Let us see 
how these people celebrate their heritage. 

First came the politicians, the leaders of our 
community, marching down the forefront holding the 
hands of their pretty young daughters. They were 
followed by batallions of soldiers dressed for war. This 
was the beginning of a parade principally comprised 
of military and police, past and present. I listened to 
loud applause and approval as the soldiers filed 
solemnly by. They were the soldiers of yesterday and 
today, the faces the same, but the weapons more 
deadly. So many of the floats typified battle, violence 
and guns. All of this military pageantry was com- 
plimenied and accented by Air Force fighter bombers 
in formation criss-crossing ths skiea over head. 

This sight distreaaed me and my first reaction waa 
bitternesa toward this bicentennial celebration. But, I 
wondered H perhaps I were a 'ouch too romantic or 

too harsh on the people for despising this brazen 
arsenal. Then I saw little children, innocent of any 
crime of deep hatred marching by very proudly in 
uniform and shouldering model guns and weapons. I 
knew then that I was not harsh enough on this 
celebration of war and pervasive insanity. 

Oh, the people were happy, for this was truely a 
great occasion commemorating so poignantly and 
accurately our deadly and malignant nature. I was 
shocked by their approval, yet perhaps they did not 
see the violence, the death, which perverts our 
nation's history. What is it they saw if not this? 

"But", you say, "the revolution that we celebrate 
was a war for freedom and liberty". At our 
'celebration' I realized that the real lovers of freedom 
and liberty were not cheering, but dreaming of a 
better day. What the people love here is war and 
killing, not peace and love. 

Two hundred years later, and every year of my life, 
most of our resources are spent on war and killing. 
The largest percentage of this government's budget is 
allocated to the military. 

Somehow it seems so ironic and pitiful to celebrate 
a birthday with instruments of death. Two hundred 
years and still there is no peace, no bve, no justice, 
and only lies for freedom. Tell me, please, is this how 
Americans celebrate, is this why we cheer, is 
bloodshed the feast of our finest moment?

To the Editor 

Some information that nuy be of 
interest to the community: 

Three weeks on the job at 
Gasland and poof I I'm fired for a 
$40.00 shortage. I go to work to 
pick up my paycheck and discover 
a new manager (the third in four 
weeks), no paycheck, and no job 
Apparently, I had been fired two 
days earlier, but no one could seem 
to find my job application, or even 
my last name in order to notify me. 

Forty dollars short? Well, it didn't 
land in my pocket. But the com- 
pany expects me to pay. The man 
who worked on my shift that day 
quit, the previous manager was 
fired and another gas station at- 
tendant was fired because he 
happened to be on duty during a 
robbery. Later, I find that the entire 
crew on Triangle Street had been 
fired two weeks earlier for refusing 
to sign surety bonds (which makes 
attendants and managers directly 
responsible for missing dollars).

diminished as the facts ac- 
cumulated and as I eventually lost 
the job anyway. 

Sunday June 13th the largest bicentennial parade in 
Massachusetts took place in Northampton. A 
reported 70,000 people watched 3,000 paradars 
representing various organizations. Many more 
viewed the parade on live television or followed it on 
the radio, ^he parade was a mish-maah of patriotism, 
militariam, and buffoonery. F-104's droned overhead, 
and old veterans droned the same old song below. 
Men dressed gregariously a.<i women and other 
outrageously costumed participants displayed a total 
lack of understanding of the bicentennial. 

As far at this observer coukj see, few contingents 
represented the spirit of the revolution, with the 
notable exception of the "Roving Community 
Theatre". The Rovers carried a banner proclaiming 
that "continuing the revolution is Common Sense in 
1976", and consisted of people from local 
organizations who are fighting cutbacks in human 
services. Some of the participants wiH take the same 
flight to Philadelphia as part of the July 4th Coalition. 

There was some question for a while whether or not 
the Rovers would be allowed to march. The Jayceea 
and the VFW of Northampton attempted to block 
them on the grounds that the Rovers were protesting. 
At one point the police threatened possible arraat. 

~ "We've worked hard and waited here for four hours 
and we're going to march," one Rover said to a poike 
officer. Common sense prevailed. The police and Mr. 
Paul Ouclos, a parade marshall, were helpful with 
working things out. 

"I think I'll march with you," Mr. Duclos declared. 
The Rovers cheered. 

"It's been a long day and we don"t want a haasle," 
the police said. 

But as usual there are those who heckle everytime 
they see a young face, long hair, or blue jeans, one 
Rover commented. 

"Ten years ago people like the Rovers protested the 
war. Then we were students. Today we live and work 
in our communities. Peoples' attitudes are changing, 
slowly, but they are changing." 

The Rovers were one of the last contingents to pass 
the reviewing stand. As they paased the television 
cameras turned away and the voice of the announcer 
clearly indicated that he wished he couW forget that 
the Rovers were even there. 

One of the Rovers was obviously miffed at this and 
the general militaristic flavor of the parade. Speaking 
for the Rovers he said, 

"Those of ua who felt the anguiah of the slaughter 
of 50,000 of our brothers won't let them forget. The 
deaths of those who protested the war won't let us 
forget. Their memory lingers on and fires the hearts of 
revolutionaries everywhere on this continent. We truly 
are the river, and we won't be stopped by levee 
builders or those who think we will go away if they 
just act like we're not here. There will be no more 
genocide and social unjustice in our names." 

The crowd left Northampton, now strewn with 
paper and bicentennial beer cans. According to 
General Hurley the parade was carried off without a 
hitch. So western Massachusetts has commemorated 
the bicentennial. Kudos go out to the Roving Com- 
munity Theatre for their revolutionary spirit, but the 
only appropriate respo.ise to the rest of the parade 
seems to be, so what?

All the facts add up to one thing: 
money matters. Apparently Good 
Hope Industries (i.e., Gasland) does 
not trust either its employees or its 

customers in that 

After being u:iemployed for three 
weeks (still awaiting a final 
paycheck and-or a trial in small 
claims court), I've decided that I am 
too angry about being ripped off 
and watching other people get 
ripped off by big businesses not to 
do anything. 

It's not only the r.iissing four 
hours of over- time that was left out 
of my last paycheck whk:h compelf 
me to write this, but the watered- 
down gas that attendants preteno 
10 pass off as real gas in customer's 
cars in order to cover shortage and- 
or pocket extra money. 

I don't believe I've seen so many 
corrupt business practices in such a 
short period of time that have been 
so well conceeled. Gaeland tends to 
mistreat iheir employees, and 
apparently their oniitaniers just 
under the degree wfwre legal action 
can t>e taken. 

It is my contention that if they 
treated both with a bit more 
respect, they would not have to be 
so concerned about proiacting their 
own money. 

Until then, I'll never be able to 
drive into a Gasland Station again 
without woTHJering whet kind of 
stuff I'm putting into my tank and- 
or my engine, or wondering how 
much the emptoyaee aie going to 
have to take out of their minimum 
wage in order to fii the day's total.

people who enjoy meeting and 
talking to other people. The CB 
radio aioA^ays are massive party 
lines where as many people who 
want to can participate and join in 
the conversation. CB provides a 
great way to get to know different 
people at the flick of a switch. 

Aside from its social uses, CBs 
are practical as well. A driver alone 
and in trouble can call for help 
without getting out of his-her car, 
and families can communicate with 
each other from car to home 
without telephoning. Complete sets 
can cost as little as $110. With the 
high cost of telephone bills, some 
people have done away with their 
home phones altogether, and just 


hit, CB fever was on its way 
becoming a national fad. 

CB paperbacks, magazines and 
even newspapers now have their 
place in newsstands all over the 

CB vocabulary has developed 
over the years, and now because of 
Its popularity, some phrases are 
being incorporated into daily 

language. Every CB operator has a ^" accident at wori< recently. Local

Lary • Sinewitz, alias Fuzzi (his 
dog's name) is a CB owner and a 
member of the area's CB club, the 
E.C.H.O.S. (Emergency Com^ 
munications Help and Organized 
Search). He stood by his radio and 
talked to "Snoopy" and answered 
a 10-36 (a time check). He ex- 
plained the 10 code (for instance, 
10-4 means affirmative, 10-81 
means to reserve a hotel room) and 
pointed out some CB phraseology; 
smoky - the police, double nickle 
- a 55 mile an hour zone, green 
stamp - a toll road, 3s and 88s - 
hugs and kisses. 

According to Lary, there is a 
fraternity among CB users because 
they all have something in com- 
mon. "A CB radio operator will do 
anything for a fellow CBer", he 
said. For example, an Easthamjaton 
CBer with the handle

Coffe Breaks are CB conventions 
held every Sunday in a different 
town or city. These meetings draw 
CBers from many states, and as 
many as 4,000 people show up each 
week. Cars of local CB groups 
travel in convoys to the Coffee 
Breaks with the philosophy that 
half the fun is getting there. 

Once at the meeting, CBers who 
have met each other only over the 
airways can now see each other in 
person, surrounded by en- 
tertainment, refreshments, games 
and prizes. QSL cards - a CBer's 
ID. with a picture of his-her handle 
and name and address - are 
exchanged at these meetings. 

There are even swap clubs where 
CBers from all over the country 
collect cards from each other. 

The ECHOS club, to which Lary 
belongs, is the areas largest CB 
search and rescue club. "If a child is 
lost, it's ECHOS main function to 
find him- her". These CBers not 
only have a good time, they're an 
asset to the community as well. 

The CB radio itself has 23 
channels. Channel 9 can only be 
used for emergencies, and channel 
19 is used primarily by truckers on a 
more formal basis. Every area has a 
local channel on which con- 
versations are held on a fairiy 
personal level. 

Voices corne across the air as 
sexy, microphone shy, brisk and 
laughing, male and female, youna 
and old. 

Almost anyone over 18 can get a 
CB license, making this com- 
munication device unique in that it 
has virtually no restrictions on age 
or sex. 

Even children can operate the 
radio if there is an adult with them. 

It is this sudden popularity and 
ease of acquiring a license that is 
creating some of the problems now 
cropping up for CB users. There are 
just too many CB owners for the 
allotted 23 channels and the air- 
ways are becoming too crowded. 
The FCC wants to expand the 
number of channels to 50, but this 
has yet to be '^'jne. 
Theft is another great problem

Wednesday, June 16, 197^ 


By Ed Cohen 

Craemen Gathers, the former 
UMass student accused and 
convicted of robbing the Mc- 
Donald's Restaurant on Route 9 in 
Hadley is still incarcerated in 
Norfollc Prison awaiting a future 
court appearance. His attorney 
Matthew Feinberg will argue for a 
new trial on the basis of two lie 
detector tests which supposedly 
prove Gethers' innocence. 

For those not familiar with the 

?f?!' '^® °''^®^' ^^^93" •" August of 
974 as three black men entered 
MacDonald's and robjaed the 
restaurant of approximately $1 lOO 
Of all the customers in McDonald's 
at the time, only three people felt 
that they could offer a positive 
Identification of the men. One of 
the persons, Stephen Pratt, had to 
withdraw from the case when it 
was proven in court that he could 
not positively identify either 
Gethers or Earl Brown, another 
man arrested as one of the robbers. 

Gethers first became involved 
with the case when he was seen by 
state's witnesses, Cathy Clark and 
Debrah Cook at a Kentucky Fried 
Chicken Restaurant located in 
Hadley several weeks after the 
robbery took place. They identified 
Gethers as one of the assailants and 
called police. He was arrested and 
taken into custoy and has been 
behind bars since. 

The first trial held from March 17- 
21, 1975 was a joint trial which 
resulted in a hung jury for both. The 
case was then split, Craemen being 
tried ana sentenced during the 
summer of 1975 and Earl convicted 
in October 1975. 

In late February of 1976, Gathers' 
lawyer at the time, Robert City, 
scheduled a court appearance to 
argue for a new trial, but because of 
what Gathers' supporters feel was a 
very inadequate defense effort, the 
motion was denied. 

Gethers present lawyer, Feinberg 
will be defending Gethers in several 
weeks, arguing for a new trial for 
his defendant on the basis of the 
lie-detector tests that were ad- 
ministered to Gethers. The results 
of the two polygraph tests in- 
dicated that Gethers aid not take ■ 
part in the robbery. Because of the 
results, the polygraph examiner 
was led to conclude that: "it is my 
opinion that he (Gethers) was not 

Earl Brown is currently attenaing 
UMass through a release program, 
until he is granted a new trial. 
Gethers has already served a year 
of an 8-12 year sentence. His future 
court appearance will take place on 
an undetermined date several 
weeks from now.

New information sprays more doubt 

Wednesday, June \6, 1976 

By Scott Hayes 

on fluorocarbon risk to ozone layer 

Academy of Sciences (NASI renort «tr«ioer,h^,« ^^m -^ ... ^ . •^ 

It has now been more than a 
month since a report on 
fluorocarbons and the depletion of 
the ozone layer by the National 
Academy of Sciences was to have 
been issued. 

And according to Sue Cspian, a 
UMass student r«M«rchar at the 
Masschusetts Public Interest 
Research Group (MassPtRG) In 
Amherst, the reason that the raport 
is still up in the air is the diacovery 
of a new reaction between chlorine 
nitrate and an oxide of nhrooan ttiat 
ihrows off earlier thaoriaa of oione 
depletion In the upper atmoaphere. 
Mimi Michaelaon, a UMass 
student on the MaasPIRG Board of 
Directors, who has done extensive 
research involving fluorocaitoons, 
says that new findings Irwolving a 
reaction between chlorine nitrate 
and an oxide of nitrogen could 
possibly throw off earlier scientific 
theories of ozone depletion by 
fluorocarbons used in aerosol cans 
and air-conditioning units. 

Uncertainties arising from the 
findings have ctelayed the National 

Academy of Sciences (NAS) report 
that could help in the final decision 
determining whether the use of 
fluorocarbon chemicals, used as 
propelants in aerosols and air- 
condltlof>ers is to be restricted by 
the government. 

Scientists have theorized that 
fluorocarbons rise to the 

stratosphere and go through a 
reaction that reduces the amount of 
ozone, which protects the earth 
from the sun's ultraviolet rays. 

Michaelson notes that industries 
have been changing their views of 
the fluorocarbon issue. Fourteen 
bilte have been proposed with 
different regulatory aims including 

the Amendment to the Clean Air 
Act and the Ozone Protection Act, 
according to Michaelson, who is 
quick to add that Arthur D. Little, a 
consultants firm in Boston did an 
economic study and found that 
reduced fluorocarbon production 
would not severely harm the 

But Professor Salvatore DanardI 
of the UMass Public Health 
Department feels that very recent 
work in the area has scientists 
rethinking the problem and it is 
possible that the seriousness of 
ozone depletion from fluorocarbons 
may be as much as "ten times less 
than originally thought." 

Danardi, who has done some 
research on fluorocarbons, says the 
reason for the reduced ozone 
depletion is a slower reaction 
.between the chemicals involved. 
"The signals out of Washington are 
not as severe as they were In the 
past concerning a ban of 
fluorocarbons," DanardI said. "It's 
difficult to do any kind of sarrv 
pling," he explained, for the simple 
reason that the part of the at- 
mosphere 6-10 miles above the 
earth is not easily accessible and 
because there is a time lag involved 
in the reaction between 
fluorocarbons and ozone. "The 
question is how fast does the 
reaction take place?" Danardi said. 
Until the new findings, scientists 
had thought that fluorocarbons 
(also known by the Du Pont trade 
name of Freon) were rapidly 
depleting the earth's ■ protective 
ozone) layer. According to the 
theory, a depleted ozone layer 
would mean an increased incidence 
of skin cancer and a possible 
change in climate due to the in- ' 
crease in ultraviolet radiation. 

Last year federal officials handed 
over the issue to the National 
Academy of Sciences with hopes 
of confirming or disproving this 
iheor/ The NAS report was to 
have come out in April, but with the 
delay, the report should be available 

JT^ - 1 W J T-% -m Y sometime in July.

* Fund transfer 


George Beatty, acting budget 
director, stated, "The Trustees 
want unification of all systems on 
campus." He added, "This will 
insure all funds that are in the 
charge of the Trustees are in a 
uniform manner according to 
university and state policies." 
Beatty is presently meeting with 
other managers at the University 
and laying the groundwork for 
changes in their accounting 
systems, as well as RSO managers 
to comply with the accounting 
system of the University. Beatty 
stated that his target is to have all 
RSO groups that are funded by 
SATF integrated into the University 
accounting system by July 1. 

When asked why the target date 
of July 1 was selected, Beatty 
responded, "Our fiscal year is July 
1-June 30. Major changes should 
be made at the beginnfng of the 
fiscal year, not the middle." 

Cronin is very concerned over the 
vast differences in processing times 
for the University accounting 
system and the RSO system. 
Cronin stated, "The university 
accounting system is a iow velocity 
system and it takes a long time for 
money to be spent. Purchase or- 
ders take three to six weeks, 
whereas, at RSO they are 
processed in two to three days. 
Also, cash advances are available at 

RSO was established 22 years 
ago, and is tailor-made to respond 
to student needs. The RSO office is 
equipped to handle a very large 
number of transactions and report 
on them in one to two weeks. The 
speed within the RSO system 
enables fast changes. A staff 
member of RSO feels it provides 
quicke*- and more accurate ac- 
counting and the University ac- 
counting system isn't capable of 
handling the needs of the RSO 
groups due to a shortage of per- 
sonnel, Cronin said. 

"If they can't handle our volume 
or processing within the specified 
lime in which we operate, it's 
ludicrous for us to make the 
change, because we'll overload 
their system," Cronin said. He 
added, "They want to bring our 
accounting into their system, but 
yet they can't handle us. They'll 
have to change their accounting 
system to fit us. We're not going to 
change to fit them." He concluded, 
"Before we go in there, they'll have 
10 prove to us that they can handle 

us, or it's no go." 

When questioned about the 
differences in processing of trans- 
actions, Beatty explained, "In most 
instances, we don't have to have 
something by tomorrow, for those 
types of things we have 
bureaucratic-oriented processing. It 
isn't as fast, but it's uniform and 
fair," he continued. Beatty said he 
realizes the concern expressed 
about getting things done, and 
said, "I will do whatever I can to 
accommodate RSO." 

"RSO will bend over backwards 
to supply information to the 
Trustees on SATF," stated 

Demers feels that the summer- 
time is a bad time to compile some 
needed information about student 
groups because people just aren't 
around this area now, and some 
information cannot be given to the 

He added, "The information 
RSO's being asked to compile will 
be furnished within a few weeks to 
the Budget Committee." As acting 
coordinator of Student Activities, 
Demers feels he can't sit back and 
let the integration happen, since 
"he way people are approaching 
the problem is destructive." 

Concerning the separation of the 
75 RSO groups funded by SATF 
from the other 657 groups, Demers 
commented, "This would be an 
extremely inefficient manner of 
doing things and would be even 
worse if they took over all of the 
RSO groups." 

Of extreme concern to Demers is 
the future of special interest 
groups, including professional- 
oriented groups, arts groups and 
honor societies. If the issue is not 
resolved by the Fall, Demers 
wonders what will happen to the 
400 or more organizations that will 
be left stuck in the middle. 

Demers is presently working with 
I he University Personnel Depart- 
ment in an effort to comply with 
university policies relating to hiring 
and other personnel related 
procedures, as requested in 
January. Demers commented, 
"This is a separate issue that is 
be-ng handled presently." 

Beatty said, "Incorporation is the 
issue so the Trustees know that 
university and state policies are 
being followed." 

He added, "The issue i& that 
RSO's accounting system is ex- 
ternal to the university accounting 
system, not the issue of RSO's

among CB owners. The strange 
looking antennae on cars are a dead 
giveaway that a CB set is inside, so 
now, CB sets are being built smaller 
and can easity be stored in the 
trunk when the car is locked. 

Lary, a salesman, explained that 
the biggest problem for new CBers 
is getting the set installed. There 
has to be a perfect balance be- 
tween the receiver and the antenna 
or else the whole thing can blow 
up. "People bring their smoldering 
radios back and ask me what 
happened," he said. 

A phenomenon called skip can 
be the cause of much aggravation 
among CB users. Skip is caused 
when the airwaves, due to at- 
mospheric disturbances, are trans- 
mitted over hundreds of miles to 
another state, much to the an- 
noyance of someone who would 
like to speak locaaly. 

A CBer is Boston might suddenly 
find himself conversing with 
someone in Alabama. Un- 
fortunately, skip cannot be con- 

Aside from technical problems, 
ihere are some socially dark sides in 
the CBer's world. There seems to 
be a feeling of hostility and tension 
between the 18 wheelers (truck- 
drivers) and the 4 wheelers. 

Car drivers are somewhat naive 
when they first use their CB set and 
I hey may misuse it. This is seen as 
inexcusable in the eyes of the 
iruckdrivers, who have oeen using

the CB radios for many years and 
might have ill feelings towards the 
four wheelers who are crowding 
the channels. "* 

Despite all the well-known 
problems, CB radios are still being 
sold at an enormous rate. Instead of 
just buying one at a time, people 
are buying sets in twos and threes 
to put one in each car and at home. 

It seems this CB fad has no in- 
lention of slowing down in the near 
future. If anything, it has given ' 
many people a convenient medium 
to send messages, make friends, 
and have a good time.

Also added was a permanent 
stage, that is one of the better set- 
ups in the valley clubs. Flat blue 
panels behind the stage and ample 
stage lighting in front keeps the 
attention on the stage. The dance 
floor IS bordered on two sides by 
raised seating and at the back by a 
new bar. All the furniture and bar 
^rea IS done in unfinished wood. A 
simple unaffected atmosphere that 
resonates with good music is the 
end result. 

Three bands kicked off the of- 
ficial Opening Night party. Mitch 

ChakoL' and the Mission Band, 
Clean Livl.-ig and Fat played to a 
wildly reciptive crowd of about 900 
inside and 300 at the door and in 
the parking lot. 

With the new renovations, the 
Rusty Nail has become one of the 
best clubs in this area to catch live 
music. They have always featured 
ihe better local bands as well as 
bringing Doc Watson, Tracy 
Nelson, Tom Rush and others to 
'he area. With the new space, the 
Nail should be able to bring more of 
the bigger drawing acts to an 
audience hungry to listen.

Awaiting the big one, 
summer releases still score 


The number of summer releases 
from the record companies has 
slowed, perhaps in anticipation of 
Sievie Wonder's long awaited 
al'^.m, but a number of good new 
alLums will keep us dancing and 
rocking until Songs in the Key of 
Life is with us. 

UMass graduate Natalie Cole has 
followed up her sensational first 
release with Natalie (Capitol). 
Natalie will please all those who 
liked her first and probably bring 
more fans over. They are pushing 
"Sophisticated Lady" as the single 
but "Mr. Melody," where she gets 
into an Ella Fitzgerald performance 
that really takes off as my favorite. 
This newest album is not as funky 
as her first. I guess she is a 
sophisticated lady, but the general 
appeal of this album is much wider 
than her debut effort. 

Give her a strong AB for this (no 
A-plus because she has so much 
potential, she's not yet done her 
best stuff). 

Go For Broke (Capitol) is the 
latest from Ian Matthews, whose 
music becomes more Americanized 
with each release. 

Matthews was a member of the 
original Fairport Convention, as 
well as founder of Matthew's 
Southern Comfort. He left the 
group to pursue a solo career that 
has never really gone as far as he 
could. Go for Broke is a typically 
tasteful work by Matthewr. 

He has always shown great 
intelligence m his choice ot other's 
material (Southern Comfort's 
version of Joni's Woodstock", out 
at the same time as the CSNY 
version, was a much more ad- 
verturous one) and this time he 
does fresh and interesting versions 
of Jesse Colin Yoi ig's "Darkness, 
Darkness", the Rf.: als' "G oovin", 
and Van Morrisoc'^ "Brown Eyed 
Girl" as well as some of his own 
songs. Best of irose might be 
"Lonely Hunter". This on© gets an 

RCA has wisely released 
Changes One Bowie right behind 
Bowie's Station To Station. 
Changes is a hits package that 
amply demonstrates the many 
directions David Bowie has taken 
since he began recording. 

Most all of his best known 
material is included on this, as well 
as an unreleased "John, I'm Only 
Dancing". I'm not his greatest fan, 
but this is an album I like very 
much, as it brings some of his best 
material together. Gets a B-plus. 

Also on RCA is the excellent 
Chester and Lester, which unites 
'he king of Nashville's guitarists 
Chet Atkins with the innovator, 
mad scientist and experimenter, 
Les Paul for the first time. Playing 
against Paul bhngs out all the in- 
spiration Atkins can muster. You 
can always hear the challenge and 

praise being shared as these 
masters play. 

Les Paul uses none of his gim- 
micks (i.e. multiple tracking) and 
comes off as no electronic whiz, 
but as a master of his chosen in- 
strument. A record that will stand 
for all time to anyone who enjoys 
and-or plays guitar, A-plus. 

Supposedly Steve Miller's Fly 
Like an Eagle (Capitol) was in the 
works for two years, but it doesn't 
show it. 

Still this is a good album, a lot 
less self-indulgent than a two-year 
effort might have been. I par- 
ticularly like the title cut which 
opens with a lot of spacey sounds 
that harken back to his inital album. 
Children of the Future. And if this 
record doesn't make the summer 
like that first one did in 1968, it is 
still good music. 

Until the members of his band 
gain identities and faces, the Steve 
Miller Band will never rise to equal 
that first aggregation (with Boz 
Scaggs, Ben Sidran, and Lonnie 
Turner) and will remain at the 
whims of Miller's dominating 

He can do much more, let's hope 
there is no two year lull this next 
time. (B) 

Asylum Records has two fine 
new releases, Chris Hillman's 
Shppm' Away and Warren Zevon's 
solo debut album. Hillman, past 
Byrd,-Burrito, and of Souther, 
Hillman and Furay, has made a fine, 
low-key solo album. 

This is his first effort under his 
own name, coming after a 12 year 
career in the business. 

If only half of the superstars 
would wait as long before releasing 
a muddled melange of music 
merely to have their name on a solo 
record, Hillman's is full of tunes 
owing more generally to the 
Burri'oes than the Byrds. It's 
counii7 flavored; alter all, he plays 
excellent mandolin, and has a 
number of those popular LA music 
people (Eagles and Poco people, as 
well as Flo and Eddie, one-time 
Springfield member Jim Fielder) 
and others on it. 

Zevon comes from who knows 
where, but he's got a lot of his 
friends coming with him. Most 
specifically, on the album at one 
ime or another are Bonnie Raitt, 
Jackson Browne, Beach Boy Carl 
Wilson, Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey 
Buckingham and stevie Nicks, John 
David Souther, Phil Everly, ano 
Eagles Glenn Frey and Don Henley 

None of the above dominate this 
latest LA composer, but all. add 
good solid music and inspiration to 
Zevon's songs. Zevon himself plays 
piano and occasional guitar. His 
songs follow ground broken by the 
Eagles in theme and style, he sings 
of outlaws and desperados, and the 
languid lifestyle of Los Angeles.

Two hard rocking bands, 
Aerosmith and Mahogany Rush, 
have new discs out. 

Of the two, Aerosmith 
(Columbia) is by far and away the 
better. Their style and music is still 
deep in the shadow of l-IV-V power 
chording and Rolling Stones 
enunciation, but few are doing it as 
well or as loud as these boys from 

Mahogany Rush IV (also 
Columbia) is more of guitarist Frank 
Marino's recycled Hendrix riffs at 
full volume. 

Nothing here is impressive ex- 
cept Marino's ability to play things 
Hendrix played in 1967. B-plus to 
Aerosmith for Rocks (it does) and a 
C to Mahogany Rush. 

And very briefly two more. Lou 
Rawls' latest is embarassingly 
limpid. The mighty singer is belting 
out dull disco frills on All Things in 
Time (Philadelphia International). 
Because Rawls can sing so well 
nothing is horrible, but all of this is 
very predictable, and he should not

UM prepares to challenge 
School of Ed federal audit 

AMHERST, Mass. [AP] - Th« 
Univaroity of Maauchusetti ia 
praparing to challenge a federal 
audit of its School of Education In 
hopes of avoiding tha refunding of 
more than $365,000 to tha 

An audit of faderal grants and 
contracts to tha school, released 
Tuesday by the Department of 
Health, Education and Welfare, 
criticized the university for violating 
federal regulations in many cases 
and failing to closely supervise 
program expenditures. 

A UMass spokesman said the 
university planned to defend 
$289,000 of the expenditures in 
question, but more specific in- 
formation from the federal agency 
was needed. 

For the time being, the spokes- 
man said, UMass was willing to 
concede that about $84,000 may 
have been misspent. 

HEW said it would grant tIMass 



"reasonable time" to provide 
further documentation on dubious 
transactions cited in the audit. 

Depending on how well the 
university counters the auditor's 
objections, the federal agency may 
eventually reduce its tally before 
demanding any refund of federal 

One university source suggested 
the federal audit raised questions 
about HEW's own financial 

"HEW has been really sloppy. 
They audited our books before, and 
I hey never found any problems 
then," the official remarked. 

The federal audit covered the 
years from 1969 to 1975 when the 
School of L'ducetion waa run by an 
innovative but often controversial 
dean, Dwight Allen. 

Allen resigned iaat year after a 
faculty member criticized fiacal 
procedures at the school, triggering 
first an internal probe and then 
investigations by federal and state 

Costs considered questionable 
by HEW in the audit included 
$200,095 to pay professional fees, 
$94,691 for personal services, 
$39,357 for telephone charges, 
$9,027 for travel expenses and 
121,702 in miscellaneoua charges. 
The study found that 60 per cent 
of telephone toll calls charged to 
federal projects at the school were 
personal cr non-grant related. 
Employes also were given the 
unlimited use of telephone credit

Golfers finish last in NCAA's, 
but coach satisfied with season 

By Jim Sawyer 

The UMass Men's Golf team 
finished last in a field of 29 teams in 
the NCAA championship tour- 
nament at Agawam Hunt Golf 
Course in Albequerque, New 
Mexico last week. 

But men's coach Fan Gaudette 
does not feel disappointed by it. 

"Though I am disappointed with 
their performance in the tour- 
nament, I still am very happy with 
their performance in the regular 
season," he said. 

Gaudette went on to say that the 
team played very well and deserved 
to go to Albequerque. Once there. 

he said, the team got off to a bad 
start, shooting 319 on their first day 
of the 72- hole tournament. 

The (act that Glenn Sullivan was 
unable to compete for UMass in the 
tournament due to his having 
turned pro by USGA (United States 
Golf Association) standards after 
last semester had a large affect on 
the team's play, said Gaudette. 

"The last time we went there" 
<last year's NCAA tournament in 
Columbus, Ohio) "we had three 
seasoned performers going for us. 
This time, it was cut down to two." 
The two seasoned performers in 
this year's tournament for UMass 

were John Lasek and Rick Olson 
ranked second and third behind 
Glenn SuHivan. At the four-day 
tournament, Lasek shot 78, 83, 79 
and 73. Olson never broke 80. 

"But above all, I'd like to say that 
these guys did a wonderful job all 
season," said Gaudette. "Golf is a 
funny game. You can go out one 
day and do great and then the next 
day, you just can't seem to do 
anything. But instead of looking at 
this tournament, I look at their 
performance all season. And I'm 
very happy with it."

After being chosen by the Baltimore Orioles in the 
sixteenth round of the college baseball draft, Craia

team last Sunday. «•«"«>

a game in the latter half of the season 

Allegrezza's pitching career at UMass was in- 
terrupted numerous times due to his being plagued by 
iniunes throughout his four years on the team He has 

had to deal with a couple of sore arms, which resulted 
in three incomplete seasons, along with the knee 
problems he is encountering now. 

Despite these problems, though, Allegrezza has 
been the ace of the UMass pitching staff for the last 
three years. This accomplishment followed closely the 
success which he found during his high school pit- 
ching career at Milton High School. 

As he works his way through camp, the question 
will be how long Allegrezza will be able to pitch with 
his knee in the condition it is. He has no doubts that 
his injury will not be much of a factor during the 
summer. "It shouW definitely hold me back in general 
conditioning, but it shouldn't affect my pitching "

2?J^^ ^ards of Northampton State H^i^l 


This is the first article of a series 
looking at mental health care in the 
Northampton -Belchertown area. 
It's as hot as hell on the wards of 
Northampton State Hospital for the 
mentall disturbed, but there is no air 
conditioning here and the "air 
cooling" system hasn't worked 
since the day the buildings were 
constructed, according to one 
hospital employee. 

The heat is only one of the 
problems at Northampton State 
hospital. Others include under- 
staffing, disorganized lab and 
dietary services and the usual main- 
tenance problems that come with 
old buildings, according to Dr. 
Irving Jacobs, Superintendent of 
the facility. 

But these are problems that have 
always been here, Jacobs said. The 
problems exist because "the tax- 
payers don't want to pay the 
money" to upgrade the facilities, he 
said, and "Joe Citizen is just not 
nterested in the plight of the in- 
dividual who is emotionally 

Jacobs went on to say that the 
only time the public pays any at- 
tention to facilities such as North- 
ampton State Hospital is when a 
crisis occurs, such as earlier this 
year when a patient at the hospital 
hung himself with his own belt. 

At the time of the incident. 
Department of Mental Health 
Commissioner Robert Okin hap- 
pened to be visiting the hospital. He 
saw that emergency medical 
equipment was not available on the 
ward where the 20-year old man

According to a Valley Advocate 
story, the patient hung himself from 
a louvre in a heating vent which is 
normally covered by a perforated 
metal cover, making it impossible to 
loop a belt through it. 

Commissioner Okin ordered an 
investigation of the suicide, while 
the suicide was still fresh in the 
public's mind. He was "frank" 
about the problems at North- 
ampton State Hospital, the Valley 
Advocate reported. 

Employees cited a lack

of privacy as one of the 
(Photo by John Silletto). 

Dr. Jacobs was also frank about 
the problems that still exist at 
Northampton, and now, four 
months later, plans have been 
made to reorganize lab and dietary 
services. The plans have not yet 
been implemented, however. 

As far as maintenance problems 
go, Jacobs said, "certain 
precautions" are taken, but there 
will never be enough." 

In some wards there are no glass 
mirrors or curtains. In the more 
chronic wards, the patients are not 
allowed to nave belts or shoe 
lacings. "Let's face it, said Jacobs, 
"if a patient wants to hang himself, 
all he needs is a chair." 

Of the 15 physicians at the 
hospital, two are psychiatrists. 
There are about 90 nurses. Jacobs 
said, and the rest are mental health 
assistants who go through an in- 
service training program. 

There are presently about 500 
patients at the hospital. 

The patients are grouped ac- 
cording :o where they live, which 
Jacobs said he sees ao beneficial. 
"That way," he said, "we can fix 
levels of responsibility to the 
patients' communities." He also 
said that by residential grouping, a 
patient is less likely to get "lost". 
He said grouping by severity of 
disturbance did not work ever since 
psychiatric hospitals were set up, 
although patients are grouped by 
severity in their residential 

One patient who was moved 
from her original grouping of men 
and women in the same ward to an 
all-women grouping said she 
wanted to return to her previous 

"I wanna go back to AP 
(building). I'm only 65 and here they 
are sticking me in with women 
pushin' 100. My husband, he came 
to see me last week and he couldii't 
find me 'cause they put me over 
here," she said. 

There is a definite lack of privacy 
at the facility. 

Physically, the buildings were 
constructed with some of the walls 
going only half way up to the 
ceiling "so the nurse could look 
down the hall and see what all of 
her patients were doing," ac- 
cording to an employee. 

Besides causing a lack of privacy, 
the walls are against fire 
regulations. So are the plastic 
flowers that sit on top of these half 
walls and the magazine pictures 
posted on them, the same em- 
ployee said. 

The toilets on one all-women 
ward have no doors, rather they 
have waist-high dividers. "But the 
patients get used to it," she said. 
"Some of the employees afford 
these patients no privacy either, " 
she added. 

For recreation, the patients 
(some of them) either roam about 
the 800 acres or sit and watch TV in 

the day rooms. There are also 
sheltered workshops for patients to 
make brushes and refinish chairs. 
Patients used to work around the 
facility, cleaning and mopping 
floors and doing other janitorial 
duties, Jacobs said. "But problems 
came up with that and we stopped 
that type of worV. Some patients 
are working 10-12 hours a day." 

Director of volunteer services 
Jim Kwiecinski said volunteers are 
much more than welcome to work 
at the hospital. ""It would be great 
to have a drama club come and put 
on a play for the patients," he said. 

"Anything to change the patients' 
routine. You see, this is a big 
hospital, and routinization is 
necessary. But if the patients could 
come and watch a play or 
something, it would be a big thing 
in their lives." 

The heat doesn't seem to bother 
the patients too much. It becomes 
part of the routine in the summer, 
and like the lack of privacy, the 
patients "get used to it." 

Most of the patients are curious 
about the man with the camera 
walking around the ward. Some of 
them don't notice, and some even 
ignore. Some even realize that the 
hospital might never change. 

"The taxpayers forget it's here." 
Jacobs said.

University workers to continue walkout 

By Scott Hayes 

In the preliminary round of the 
state workers' strike. Carol Drew, 
president of the 1776 Chapter of 
AFL-CIO, addressed a gathering of 
university workers during lunch 
hour last Friday in front of the 
Student Union building. 

Standing behind a temporary 
podium and forcefully listing the 
demands of the workers, Drew's 
amplified voice attracted a large 

By Monday, strikers picketed in 
front of Whitmore and the entrance 
to the Campus Center circle. A day 
later the picket lines thickened and 
expanded to the front of the 
Student Union. 

"We intend to continue this until 
the state gives the alliance what it 

wants," said one state worker at 
the University. 

Students met. including the 
Union of Student Employees 
(USE), but no stand was taken. 
According to one member of the 
Board of Governors, students can 
honor the picket lines on an in- 
dividual basis. 

The university chapter of the 
union met Monday morning to vote 
on the possibility of striking and 
less than an hour and a half later 
reached an official "yes" vote. 

The strike resulted in the closing 
of the People's Market, and the 
Bluewall will not serve alcoholic 
beverages as long as the strike 

The strike began officially at 6 
a.m. yesterday as about 50 
university workers lined Lot 25 

respecting the picket line. 

Fran Koster, director of the 
Toward Tomorrow Fair, said that 
the strike will not interfere with 
plans for the event this weekend. 
"It's really too late to stop now," 
Koster said. 

"We will not tolerate a con- 
tinuation of the walkout," Governor 
Michael S. Dukakis said at a 
Monday afternoon press con- 
ference. "Nor will we engage in 
meaningful negotiations as long as 
it continues," the governor said of 
the strike, which is illegal under the 

state's 1974 collective bargaining 

But Dukakis' statement didn't 
seem to bother University workers. 
"If union leaders are jailed, we'll 
just continue until they're 
released," said another state

Wa/Vmg the system 

Craemen Gethers. the UMass 
student acctjsed and convicted of 
robbing the MacDonald's 
restaurant on Route 9 in Hadtey, is 
still incarcerated in Norfolk Prison 
awaiting a future court appearance. 
His attomey, Matthew Feinberg, 
will argue for a new trial on the 
basis of two lie detector tests which 
prove his innocence. 

For those not tamiluir with this 
tragic case, the ordeal began in 
August of 1974, as three black men 
entered MacDonald's and robbed 
the restaurant at aun ooint of abc 
$1100. The police recovered 
vehicle matching the description 
the getaway car, ar>d insid« 
found a shotgun, a brown tur 
rwck and a long green coat, 
court, the police stated that „., 
were no fingerprints to be found 
any of the items. 

Of all the customers in Ml 
Dor^aW's at the time, only thr^ 
people, all white, felt that 
could offer a positive identifies ti4 
of the men. One of 

In Brown's case, the photo used 
to positively identify him as one of 
the men taking part in the robbery 
was not a picture of Robert EaH 
Brown at all, but a photo of a 
Robert Brown having Earl Brown's 
name on the back. The student had 
moved to Boston several years 
before and didn't even resemble 
Eari. During the course of the rial, 
the prosecuting attorney used the 
turtleneck and coat found in 
Brown's room to justify conviction, 
despite the discovery of similar 
items of clothing found in the 
getaway car.

Gethers first became involved 
with the case when he was seen by 
state's witnesses Cathy Clark and 
Debrah Cook at a Kentucky Fried 
Chicken Restaurant located in 
Hadley several weeks after the 
robbery took place. They identified 
Gethers as one of the assailants and 
called police. He was arrested 
taken into custody, and has beeri 
behind bars since. 

The first trial, held from March' 
17-21, 1975, was a joint trial which 
resulted in a hung jury for both 
Gethers and Brown. The case was 
tl-en split, with Gethers being tried 
and sentenced during the summer 
of 1975 and Brown convicted in

or Craemen Gethers at the time of 
his arrest, yet the two witnesses 
said that they recognized distinct 
facial features. 

In late February of 1976, Gathers' 
lawyer at the tin'*, Robert City, 
scheduled a court appearance to 
argue for a new trial, but because of 
what Gathers' supporters feel was a 
very inadequate defense effort, the 
motion was denied. 

Gether's present lawyer, Fein- 
berg, will be defending Gethers in 
several weeks, arguing for a new 
tnal for his defendant on the basis 
of two lie-detector tests that were 
admmistered to Gethers. The 
results of the two polygraph tests 
gave evidence that Gethers did not 
take part in the robbery. 

Because of the tests' results, the 
polygraph examiner was led to con- 
clude that: "It is my opinion that he 
(Gethers) was not involved." 
(Amherst Record, Wednesday 
|28, 1976) The polygraph

|rg, "will be glad to testify" in 
behalf when the full 
takes place.

Takin ' it to the streets 

Something of last week is still circulating in my system and the bicen- 
tennial IS yet mounting its awesome charge upon us. Beyond the military 
pageantry which accents our celebrations there is some remnant of moral 
fiber and political integrity left, however oblivious to the common people of 
our nation. The bicentennial purports to symbolize a heritage of political 
freedom and social equality. The American Revolution is said to stand for 
liberty justice, and what qualifies for the happiness of the working class 
Whether or not this be the triith, and reality of our hi«ory. the words strike 
a p<»itive chord of virtue in our uncertain past In the advwit of this two 
hundredth birthday of our society one may grope for and y«t fail to find the 
link of this past to our puzzling and sordid present. 

The American people are celebrating, or so Madison Avenue and the 
pitiful media seek to convince us. Where is the enthusiasm, the hunger for 
a good political discussion and involvement in governing our lives as a 
democratic people? The triJth is that the celebration in this country takes 
Its origin with the profit motive. Every large corporation and all of the fast 
food chains of poison have taken the opportunity to make a buck off the 
bicentennial. Their activities are a repulsive parody on what our birthday 
could mean. But so many of us have become their slaves and victims of the 
clock and stop light that few feel the spiritual character of an American 
Revolution. Our lives and our thoughts have become such a malleable and 
marketable resource, that we do not relate our personal livee to the 
phrases and philosophy of years gone by. 

At this time of year, many persons are taking to the streets with initiative 
petitions and nominating papers, trying to solicit the democratic support of 
sister and brother Americans. It is good to see the people on the streets 
acknowtedging and trying to change the political nature of our livas by 
exercising the rights secured for them by an American revolution The 
population at large, the shoppers on the streets, are irritated and in- 
timidated by these political creatures. So often I am amazed at the great 
lengths people will go to in order to avoid being asked to sign a petition I 
have seen people cross streets to avoid petitioners. I have had people walk 
by me and thoroughly ignore my pleas to sign. I have watched more ob- 
noxious sorts tip over tables and threaten violence. Why? Is this the 
matured, seasoned American citizen? People do not want to get involved 
but such is their lot whether they choose to be or not. Their non- 
commitment, their absence of thought and expression has a profound 
effect on their relations with other human beings. People condemn and 
corrupt and unresponsive government yet it is their own schizoid character 
which has carefully mouWed it into present form. The apathetic shall get 
what they deserve as they embartc into the drunken stupor and empty 
phrases on July, 4. They will consume the 'very nice' buy-centennial sold 
to them by the corporate empire, and they will go on not thinking until they 
back themselves into a corner. Then they will be forced to face a reality of 
injustice, authoritativeness, and emptiness which they have created. 
Perhaps they will realize the intimate and fundamental value of political 
action and social consciousness, but then, perhaps not. Perhaps they will 
see the virtue of political involvement and appreciate the courage it takes 
to fact the mindless, amoral mobs on the street corners. 

There is no better time for this nation to begin to think again, than this 
our birthday season. Sooner or later life is going to change or cease. If you 
give It lonrw careful thought you may realize that many of the things we 
have become are noteo very different from that which we so mortally fear 
- 1984, made manifest. In the meantime, how about being kind to a

Toward Tomorrow Fair 
to enliven Campus Center 

By Craig Roche oth«rit«,««««»wu:u:... ... . . . _ 

By Craig Roche 

A look into America's third 
century will be a unique way of 
celebrating this country's Bicen- 
tennial when the Toward 
Tomorrow Fair brings hundreds of 
ideas, exhibits, films, and people 
together this weekend, June 25-27, 
at the University. 

The Fair will fill the campus with 
an expected 15,000 to 20,000 in- 
terested observers and participants. 
There will be a miriad of exhibitions 
on solar energy, alternative ap- 
proaches to the future, films and 
speakers as an ongoing dialogue of 
what our third century will be takes 
place. The Murray D. Lincoln 
Campus Center will be the scene of 
most of the action, with the area 
around it filling up with music and 

Frank Koster, director of the Fair, 
spoke briefly yesterday about the 
possibility that the strike might in 
some way interrupt the plans for 
the upcoming event. "If s really too 
late to stop now. People travelling 
by car from all over the country 
have already left. We've been 
planning this for eight months now, 
and we're hopeful that the strikers 
realize this is a student run affair." 
One of the central events will be 
the Massachusetts Tomorrow 
Convocation that takes place on 
June 25. Resulting from a study 
that took one year, the Con- 
vocation arises from a year's study, 
discussion and four conferences 
that have dealt with the question: 
"If unlimited growth is not possible, 
where and how should we grow?'' 
The answer will be oefined by 
looking at the economy, land use, 
and people's lives. 

This conference will take place in 
the Campus Center, and requires a 
$15 registration fee. That fee in- 
cludes lunch and dinner. The 
registration will take place at 8:30 
a.m. on June 25. 

The highlight of the convocation 
will undoubtedly be the debate 
between futurist Herman Kahn and 
Stuart Brand, editor of the Co- 
Evolution Quarteriy. They will be 
debating the topic entitled: "The 
Merits of Centralization for In- 
dividuals and Society." In perfect 
future-thinking, video tapes of the 
debate will be replayed throughout 
the fair. 

Exhibits will range over five acres 
of land, displaying windmills, 
shelters, political parties, stained 
glass, an electric car, and a whole- 
tree chipper. The chipper, an 
exhibit from the Wood Energy 
Institute, is an amazing piece of 
equipment that is able to take a 60- 
foot tree trunk and reduce it to 
wood chips In 30 seconds. 
Demonstrations of just that will be 
taking place during the fair. 

Two hundred exhibitors will have 
the opportunity to reach the public 
through the show. Spectators will 
be able to share in the exhibition at 
the risk of learning more about the 
world of tomorrow. To categorize 
the exhibits is an impossible task, 
but vague classifications of 
education and awareness, energy, 
environment, health, and people 
have been made 

Other highlights of the Toward 
Tomorrow Fair will be displays and 
music outside the Campus Center 
on Metawampie Lawn. There the 
Energy Research and Development 
Administration will display solar 
energy home heating and cooling 
systems. They will be showing a 
complete solar set-up, and ex 
plaining the workings of the 

"The Future of Criminal Justice 
How It Looks to Us" is a multi- 
media exhibit put on by the Families 
and Friends of Prisoners- Prison 
Education Program. The Rodale 
Press, Inc. of Emmaus, Pa. will 
demonstrate their Rodale Energy- 
cycle, a device that uses pedal 
power to grind flour, shred meat, 
open cans and pump water. Among 

other Items on exhibit will be a food 
dryer, a one-gallon toilet, and a self- 
rinsing seed sprouter. 

Looking toward simpler designs 
in living, the Yurt Foundation from 
Bucks Harbor, Maine will be

light tent-like structure nomadic 
tribes in Siberia and Mongolia 

An exhibit made from recycled 
materials demonstrates the en- 
vironmentally sound "Now House" 
as created by Earth Metabolic 
Design, Inc. from New Haven, 
Conn, that, with their presentation, 
is a look at the relationship of 
human shelters to the earth. 

National experts in metric 
education, the Northeast Metric 

Resource Center, located here in 
Amherst, will be presenting a 
variety of materials used to teach 

Goings-on inside the Campus 
Center will be large in number, if 
somewhat smaller in space. A 
partial listing of speakers includes 
Ralph Nader, Florynce Kennedy 
and Whole Earth Catalog creator 
Stuart Brand. 

Nader will speak on Saturday at 
11 and 1:30 on the U.S. energy 
policy. Besides debating Kahn on 
Friday, Brand will speak Saturday 
on "Whafs Soft about Soft 
Technology?" Saturday will also 
hear Jill Johnston, writer for the 
Village Voice, ^^ive a two-part 
lecture on "Alternative Lifestyles- 
and the Stake." 

Sunday, James Benson, whose 
background includes urban 
planning, geology, computers, and 
telecommunications will speak on 
the Solar Division of the Energy 
Research and Development Ad- 
ministration. Michio KushI, a 
recognized authority on Oriental 
medicine will speak on "Macro- 
biotics and Holistic Health." 

Kennedy, woman lawyer and 
founder of the Feminist Party, and 
People's Bicentennial Committee 
leader Jeremy Rifkin will also speak 

Throughout the Fair a con- 
tinuous series of presentations 
lectures, sideshows, discussions, 
workshops, and video-tape 
showings will be offered in the 
Center. Fifteen presentations will 
be conducted every hour on both 
Saturday and Sunday. Among the 
many topics are: The Owner Built 
Home; Organic Agriculture in New 
England; Taking Care of Ourselves

Coalition work to peakinPhiladelphi 

Among some 65,000 people who 
are expected to be in Philadelphia 
on July 4 tor the nations Bicen- 
tennial celebration will be a group 
of 300 local representatives of the 
July 4 Coalition. 

Since early March, when 94 

organizations sent 'apiiesentatives 
to a New York meeting to etect a 
national board (w..are the initial 
plans for local coalitions were 
made), the July 4 Coalition has 
been planning action on a 
nationwide level.

u.hnl^n^°^"^'°? members assign bus seats to those

the Native American Solidarity 
Committee, (NASC) speaks of the 
coalition as "one of the few 
organized ways In which people are 
reacting to the Bicentennial hoop- 
la." The only thing the various 
groups have in common is a desire 
to react to the Bicentennial 
celebration," says Brentlinger. 

The coalition consists of about 20 
groups in the Northampton- 
Amherst area, including the People 
for Economic Solidarity, the 
Veterans Coalition, NASC and the 
Puerto Rican Solidarity Committee. 

What the local coalition is doing 
is organizing the bus trip to 
Philadelphia, where the work of 
coalition members across the 
nation will climax in a rally. 

According to Gordon Pavy, 
spokesperson for the local coalition 
and a member of two of the 
coalition's many committees, the 
Northampton-Amherst branch of 
the national coalition is set up as 
four task forces. "The task forces 

are responsible for publication and 
media contacts, educations! 
meetings, entertainment and 
transportation and finance," ex- 
plains Pavy. 

David Whinestone of People for 
Economic Survival, feels that there 
is more to the coalition than just 
getting 300 people together to ride 
on six buses and demonstrate in 
Philadelphia. "That's only part of 
it," says Whinestone. "The rest of 
it has been trying to educate 
ourselves on many issues and 
trying to set up a working

Lucia Bumo of the Commuter 
Collective, another organization 
that is part of ine coalition, feels 
that the demonstration in 
Philadelphia is necessarv. "I think 
it's important because the in- 
ternational media are going to be 
there to listen to President Ford and 
whoever else is there telling how 
great things have been over the 
past 200 years when we know they 

Bumo doesn't believe that the 
coalition will end in the July 4 
demonstration. "There have been a 
lot of groups that have been 
working together and have 
established strong working ties. I 
would hope that we would con- 
tinue to work together after the 
rally," Burno said. 

Other groups that are part of the 
coalition are the Employed- 
Unemployed Council, the S-1 
Coalition, the Brown-Gethers 
Defense Committee, the American 
Friends Service Committee, the 
Cultural Workers Collective, the 
New American Movement, the 
Chile .>olidarity Committee and the 
Sunday Music Collective. 

The coalition, which was only a 
conversation piece at the Hard 
Times Conference in Chicago last 
January, has overcome some 
potential organizational problems in 
preparation for the rally at the 
nation's birthday party in less than 
two weeks. And when the buses 
return to the Northampton- 
Amherst area after the ride to 
Philadelphia no one is really sure 
what will become of the coalition. 
But its members are staking bets 
that the precedent set by the 
coalition will hold the various 
groups together, or at least make 
working together for a particular 
goal a little bit easier.

of a women's con- 
tingent. (Photo by Jean 


jmakes plans 

On a recent Saturday 
morning in Northampton 
about 25 women met at the 
July 4 Coalition office to 
^ discuss plans for a women's 
* contingent at the upcoming 
July 4 demonstration in 

The idea for a women's 
contingent came to life after 
the showing of the film "Union 
Maids" recently in Nor- 
thampton. Since then the 
women's caucus has sought 
support from the national 
coalition and from the other 
contingents. The national 
coalition has asked the 
western Mass. women's 
caucus to control the con- 
tingent nationally, according to 
Gail Vittori, chairperson of the 

But the caucus feels that no 
I woman should be put in the 
[position of having to make a 
Idecision which would appear 
jto reflect a primary alliance 
Iwith one contingent over 

i Read the t 
J Collegian I 

So, the women have asked 
that each of the major con- 
tingents send a representative 
grouping to the women's 
contingent. That way, ac- 
cording to Nina Tepper, one 
local representative to the 
national coalition, women will 
not feel that they are 
representing only women 
^ when they may wish to 
I represent another struggle as 

"But unless there is a 
; position response from uthe. 
contingents and unless there is 
Third World representation," 
said Tepper, "there will be no 
women's contingent." 

Tepper said the approaching 
event will be "very big, very 
colorful and very amazing". 

A large banner reflecting the 
unity of all women's struggles 
was proposed to lead the 
women's contingent. Some 
suggestions for the banner 
included: "Women's Struggles 
are People's Struggles," 
"Moutain-Moving Day is 
Coming," a(id "Wometi 
Struggle; Women Unite". 

The contingent also plans to 
carry posters and banners of 
various women freedom 
fighters from different racial 
and ethnic groupings. 

Plans tor cniia care are oeing 
worked out at the Nor- 
thampton office. 

umer groups from the area 
include the Native American, 
Puerto Rican, and Black 
contingents. Tepper said she 
hopes Western Mass. will 
bring "at least 300" people to 
the event.

Psychologist studies aggression; 
finds TV reflects destructive values 

Bv I tutrix \AJnnr4 

Wednesday, June 23, 1976 

fiy Laurie Wood 

Aggress/on - a first or un- 
provoked attack, or act of hosti/ity 
anassau/t. - Webster's Dictionary'. 

Is aggression an act which is 
tnstinctly carried out by humans, or 
IS it one which must be fostered 
within society and passed onto its 
members through example? 

It is this question and many 
others concerning aggression 
which Professor Seymour Epstein, 
of the Psychology Department has 
been studying during the past ten 

Television, one of the main 
mediums of communication in the 
United States, has been blamed by 
many for causing individuals to act 

in violent ways. According to 
Epstein, "The trouble with TV is 
that it reflects some of the more 
destructive values in American 
society." He goes on to say that 
television is only a symptom of 
violence; that it has become a 
scapegoat because, "seeing 
aggression doesn't make people 
imitate it."

X^ .'UjK 

Through experimentation, Ept- 
stein has discovered that in some 
instances watching violence has 
caused some individuals to become 
less violent. He explains that, "They 
didn't like what they saw and in- 
stead of copying it they actually 
backed off." 

One such experiment illustrating 
this fact involved a few hundred 
participants. Subjects were taken 
two at a time and were placed in a 
competitive situation in which their 
reaction time was tested. 

The experiment consisted of a 
number of trials that began by 
having each subject adjust a switch 
to store any of five intensity levels 
of shock that he wished his op- 
ponent to receive. The shock levels 
ranged from simply a tickle sen- 
sation to an unpleasant jolt. Next, 
upon receiving a ready signal, each 
subject pressed down upon a 
telegraph key and released it as 
quickly as possible. And finally, 
whomever performed this motiori 
faster received a feedback signal 
which consisted of a light that 
indicated the amount of shock that 
had been set for the subject to 
receive by his opponent, while the 
opponent received the shock that 
had been set for him as well. 

According to Professor Epstein, 
results showed that, "People are 
much more strongly influenced by 
what they see their opponent tried 
to do to them than what actually 
happened to them." He said that on

the most part, opponents did not 
give each other the most intense 
shock; they showed a tendency not 
to be as aggressive as they could 
toward each other. 

Epstein adds that, "Aggression 
presented in the media may not 
always be blindly imitated, and in 
some circumstances may even lead 
to an avoidance of aggression," as 
is indicated by the results of the 

Epstein concludes that, 
"Television pictures violence as an 
admirable way of showing 
aggression." He continues, "How 
an aggressor is portrayed in a 
television scene may influence 
whether his aggression will be 
imitated,... One man's villain is 
another man's hero." He finds that 
the use or gur>s by a hero or a villain 
in carrying out an aggressive act 
may be more important in in- 
fluencing behavior than whether or 
not the act was admirable. 

Epstein sees "making fun of 
violence" on television as a solution 
to causing heroes to solve their 
problems as sensitive human 
beings without needing to be 
aggressive in order to achieve their

The fringe benefits of Washington poUtics 

By Craig Roche 

Just as last summer was 
dominated by the Jaws hysteria, 
'jndoubtedly the sensation of the 
Summer of 76 will be in that shark- 
infested sea of politics. At this 
moment, the first wave of the 
lunacy can be found in two books, 
"The Final Days" by Bob 
Woodward and Carl Berstein, and 

"The Washington Fringe Benefit" 
by Elizabeth Ray. Somehow it all 
seems very correct that the Ray 
book was released last week, 
almost four years to the day of the 
Watergate Break-in (June 17). In an 
effort to gain some understanding 
of how my government works, to 
get behind the scenes and beneath 
the covers, if you will, I devoted 
hours in the sun reading these two 

books last week. Perhaps the sun 
baked my brain, but in the heat of 
the day, I began to see the thread 
that ties all this together. 

It is no secret that power and sex 
are strong drives that come from 
deep within the nature of human 
beings. And in the rarified at- 
mosphere of Washington, D.C., the 
drives mix into a heady concoction 
that can tend to overwhelm. Just

ask Wilbur Mills. Enter into this city, 
then, one country farm-girl, Betty- 
Lou Ray. At the risk of making a 
symbol of some dinosaur-like 
figure, doomed to extinction, in 
many ways she personifies the 
woman who uses her physical 
assets to go as far in life as she can. 
Needless to say, it is hard to go far 
if you're lying down most of the 

"The Washington Fringe 
Benefit" is an extrodinarily skimpy 
work, deemed fiction to protect 
Ray from potential lawsuits. But 
this is sketchy fiction; it is 
populated with thinly disguised 
figures whose real names are made 
public about once a week. What 

book, "The Final Days", is a sequel 
in true Hollywood style, the way 
"Beneath the Planet of the Apes" 
and three others capitalized on the 
first. And this book costs $3.00 
more. It's almost as if Jerry Kap- 
stein, lawyer for nhariy of baseball's 
money-hungry superstars, was also 
handling the Woodward and 
Bernstein account. 

If more worthy revelations came 
out of "Final Days" it might be 
worth it. But, like Ray's book, "The 
Final Days" is gossip and un- 
substantiated quotes. They seem to 
have left most of their good news 
sense behind. Deep Throat was 
hard enough to swallow. There are 
those who doubt Deep Throat ever 
existed, and even others who claim 

the hell, I truly hope that our 

nation's leaders are leading a^'^^^P throat fed the writers CIA 

healthy sex life. Those mentioned in authorized information, making 

Benefit" are, as described alia 
"Happy Hooker" style. Our author 
has written a breezy (Cosmopolitan 
jargon here) 172 page quickie that 
has by-passed the hardbound 
release and came out in paper back 
for $1.75. Note that this is more 
than a penny a page. 

It takes the reader as long to read 
"Fringe Benefit" as it must have 
taken Elizabeth to develop a 
relationship. It's to be hoped that 
she came away with more than I did 
for the same amount of time in- 
vested. I was left with a feeling of 
some pity because Ray clearly feels 
all she has to offer is her body and 
now that she's blown her cover 
(let's face it Liz, no one is going to 
hire you now) she really can't offer 
that. She makes it clear that she 
feels very spiritually close to 
Marilyn Monroe, who should have 
been a tragic lesson for her, but 

Tragic figures abound in "The 
Final Days ", but before we plunge 
into that, a few introductory points 
need to be made. There should be 
\ ast differences between these two 
books. There aren't. Woodward 
and Bernstein are, of course, the 
two Post reporters who made the 

Woodward and Bernstein their 
unknowing mouthpieces. Much of 
"The Final Days" lacks even a 
minimum of true credibility. Besides 
getting Nixon and Kissinger in the 
same room, how do these two 
know enough of what really was 
said to put it all into quotes? 

No real picture of the goings-on 
before the Nixon resignation 
emerges. The reader instead gets a 
feel for the chaos and mistrust that 
ran rampant in the Oval Office. But 
the accurate story of the final days 
of the Nixon White House is yet to 
be written. All that "The Final 
Days" has dorie is to damage the 
reputations of Bob Woodward and 
Carl Bernstein as reporters. 

President Nixon emerges as a 
terribly pathetic creature and the 
book serves only to further injure an 
already beaten man. As much as I 
loathe the Nixon crowd, I was 
pleased and proud to see Julie 
Nixon Eisenhower reply to the book 
in a column in Newsweek. I don'i 
like that man Richard Nixon at all, 
but he deserves more than the 
cheap shots Woodward and 
Bernstein have taken at him with 
this book. 

"The Final Days" makes for 

Watergate story. They are also the interesting reading. It is fascinating 

men who wrote "All the President's """^ ^w»^r,«.,;„^ ♦« .«i:.._ .u_ 

Men" which made them rich. That, 

plus a percentage on the movie of 

the same name that is currently the 

best drawing film of the summer 

makes them very rich. The new

Nader speeches highlight weekend fair 

By Scott Hayes 

Of the long list of speakers that 
visited campus during the Toward 
Tomorrow Fair, Ralph Nader at- 
tracted the largest group of 

More than 150^ people packed 
two speeches by the consumer 
leader, who spoke on "Citizen 
Involvement in the Future" and 
"U.S. Energy Policies," on the first 
day of the fair. 

Nader touched upon several 
topics in his first speech on 
Saturday before an audience of 700 
in a crowded and hot Student 
Union Ballroom. He talked of the 
corporate leaders. How many 
people here can name the owner of 
General Motors?" Nader asked the 
large audience. 

"Education is an exposure to 
indoctrination," Nader said later in 
the speech before speaking of the 
obstacles in the communications 
systems in the country. 

"The alHA/aves are controlled by 
large networks, corporations," 
Nader said. "We've lost control of 
our communication systems. We 
don't even have a letter to the 
editor right on most television 

Nader opened his second speech 
an hour and a half after the first, 
with a three-word introduction. 
"Power determines energy," he 
told an even larger Campus Center 
Auditorium crowd. 

Nader cited the "charades ' of oil 
companies to keep the price of 
domestic products at a high level. 

"Corporations thrive on inef- 
ficiency," Nader stated. "The rate 
system encourages waste. " 

"The only way big business is 
going to accept solar energy is if 
they can control the technology," 
he added. 

"The top priorities in energy will 
be conservation and solar. Solar 
energy can be bought on board 
much faster than everyone thinks," 
Nader said. 

Nader, wearing a blue-gray suit, 
ended both speeches on a note of 
"political encouragement", saying 
that he was not endorsing any 
candidate, but that "it looks like 
Carter in November," and that it is 
important to confront the can- 
didates with the issues. 

Nader also said, "Conservation is 
one of the lowest priorities of our 
energy policy in Washington, when 

it should be one of the highest." 

At times, Nader spoke with 
cynicism. "Patriotism - what a 
besmirched concept. How many 
times has that been used as a fig 
leaf for the greatest corporate and 
government crimes?" he asked an 
apparently captivated audience. 

And at times, Nader drew cheers 

and laughs from the audience. As 
far as they were concerned, Nader 
is still the leader of the consumer 

At a press conference after his 
speeches, Nader commented on 
the fair. "I think the fair is a 
beautiful example of an emerging 
culture in this country," he said 

Y • ' v-uuiury, ne said, question. 

Lovejoy discusses culture 
of future nuclear power 

Nader answered questions at the 
press conference concerning the 
region. "I don't think the people of 
Western Mass. will ever let the 
plant (Montague) be built," Nader 

"New England has to make a 
reassessment of its resources," he 
said in response to another 

Candidate Hall urges 
new world socialism 

By Paul Logue, Jr. 

The Communist candidate for 
president in 1976, Gus Hall, spoke 
10 an estimated three hundred 
people about his stand on current 
issues on the final day of the 
Toward Tomorrow Fair. 

Hall, General Secretary of the 
Communist Party in the United 
States for 16 years, said, "Nobody 
is talking about the real issues of 
ihe country and the world. Reagan 
talks about the troops going into 
South Africa, Ford is shaky on 
detante. Carter slips up on 'ethnic 
purity'; I'm here to address the 

Hall feels that it is important to 
vote against big business and big 
parties by voting Communist. "By 
voting against these backers of big 
business, it will help build towards a 
rapidly growing 'world socialism'," 
Hall explained. "I remembe.a world 
with nothing but capitalism, now 
over one- third of the people are 
living a better life with places like 
Italy, Portugal and France, with 
strong Communist votes showing 
the inevitability of Communism." 
Other issues Hall addressed 

- Supreme Court and Racism - 
"They are undoing the laws which 
have been fought for and are 
already on the books. This will lead 
to more poverty and hardships for 
minority people in cities." 

- Technology - "When are we 
going to push for a smaller military 

budget and start feeding people in 
;his country? Why not close the 
housing projects in Germany and 
Japanese Military bases and build 
decent housing for the poor?" 

-Banking Interests - ""These 
people are making millions every 
week on bonds to band-aid the 
workers resentment. Why not hold 
off on banking interests instead of 
workers wages?" 

Hall believes that people must 
become more educated in order to 
reach ihe apex of social 
revolution'. He said, "Revolution is 
not a secret hatched in a closet, a 
conspiracy of a few people, it is an 
open ended transition to meet the 
needs of the people. 

"The people's rights are being 
continually eroded and it reflects on 
Ihe voting ballot." 

Hall also stated, "Fifty years ago 
we were on the ballot in 37 states, 
in 1972 it was 13 and this year I 
don't know if we will get that." He 
cited power plays by local county 
clerks who hinder the long process 
of garnering signatures for getting 
on the ballot. "If you are not on the 
ballot, the radio is reluctant to sell 
you time on the radio as a can- 
didate," Hall said. 

"In Delaware the state police 
conduct the signature campaign, a 
fine democratic state," Hall uttered 
in both mockery and despair. 

The people must challenge the 
system of capitalism to build a 
better, more viable existence," Hall 

By E. Patrick McQuaid 

If you couldn't squeeze yourself 
into the standing room only crowd 
at Ralph Nader's presentation, ""A 
critique of U.S. Energy Policies" at 
1:30 Saturday afternoon you could 
hear pretty much the same lecture 
at 7:00 that evening by Sam 
Lovejoy entitled "The Policies of 
Nuclear Power". 

Lovejoy's opposition to nuclear 
power became a case of Civil 
Disobedience when in February 
1974 he toppled a Western 
Massachusetts Electric Company 
(WMECO) weather tower on the 
Montague Plains. He was acquitted 
from the charge on a technicality 
concerning property ownership. 

"It's not the politics of nuclear 
power," began Lovejoy, "It's the 
culture of nuclear power. We're 
talking about how it will effect daily 
living." He further stressed, as did 
Nader, that the seven major oil 
companies, referred to as the 
"Seven Sisters" have conspired 
with General Electric and 
Westinghouse to seize control of all 
possible energy resources. 

"It's no longer an oil cartel; it's a 
total energy cartel!" he said, 
pointing out that the joint efforts of 
these companies now control 90 

per cent of all geothermal reserves, 
50 per cent of coal reserves, and 65 
per cent of the country's uranium 
ore reserves for the last 3 years. 

The conspiracy is not restricted 
to this continent, but, according to 
both speakers, is quickly 
developing into a global affair. 

' As the anti-nuke campaigners in 
this country begin to take effect," 
he warned his audience, "and slow 
down the Nuke construction in this 
country, we are screwing the Third 
World!" He illustrated this remark 
by explaining a multinational 
venture between France, Iran, and 
South Africa. He said that the 
French are building nukes for Iran 
and in return receive oil. Mean- 
while, South Africa is supplying the 
two countries with the uranium 
necessary to fuel the nukes; South 
Africa also receives oil for Iran. The 
French nuclear power companies, 
he pointed out, are in reality owned 
by Westinghouse through the 
Rothschilds (Paris based 

Until we put the finger on 
Westinghouse," he continued, 
"and stop the actual assembly 
work, we cannot stop the nukes." 
Lovejoy doesn't believe that 
voting will have any effect on the 
nuke situation. ""You don't change 

Ihe world by throwing a piece of 
paper in a ballot box. Voting is, as 
T.ioreau once said, like a shit in the 
morning; a process in which you 
start your day, but what do you do 

According to Lovejoy the answer 
is through the decenteralization of 
big government. 

"Technology must relate to the 

community that it is serving. 

Technology must become small, 

controllable, and digestable." He 

stated that a money saving solar 

panel had been developed but big 

business and big government won't 

allow the product to reach the 

market. "You've got to do it 

yourself! You've got to bring that 

technology down to earth; down to 

the people who will use it." 

Lovejoy suggests an active 
grassroots campaign against the 
construction of nuclear power 
plants and would condone action 
such as his own in 1974 if 

"In a society that knows how to 
waste better than it knows how to 
do anything else," he said, "we've 
got to stretch the word political to 
cultural. A cultural energy ethic 
must be a broad alliance with all the 
countries and the Third World 
Countries. It calls for education," 
he concluded. 

Kennedy war--is SUB crowd 

By Laurie Wood 

The heat of the day had already 
begun to wane at 5 p.m. on Sunday 
afternoon, but inside the Student 
Union Ballroom, Florynce Kennedy 
brought a warmth and energy of 
her own which enlivened the 
already spirited crowd, and which 
turned what could have been 
another political speech into a gay 

Ms. Kennedy had just returned 
from attending the week-long 
National Hookers Convention in 
New York, and she began her 
presentation with a medley of 
songs that began with "Everybody 
Needs A Hooker Once In Awhile." 
Asking for volunteers from the 
audience to help her with the lyrics, 
she placed the crowd at ease after 
entertaining them in this fashion for 
a good fifteen minutes. 

During her dialog, which lasted 
more than an hour, Ms. Kennedy 
touched upon subjects ranging 

from p.o-iitution to socialism to the 
high prices of consumer goods. 

Alluding to the priorities which 
politicians placed upon various 
problems in our society, Ms. 
Kennedy said, "I have never seen 
anybody in the middle of the day 
harrassed by a prostitute ... but, 
you see, the whole thing that's so 
offensive about what I call the 
EWAW (every woman a whore) is 
that bills like the Ornsby's bill, the 
S-1 bill and various other bills ... are 
simply saying that prostitutes are 
such a menace." 

She asked exactly what the 
menace is which prostitutes 
present to our socist>' when there 
are problems such as tobacco 
abuse, alcoholism, and cancer 
which take the lives of countless 
numbers of people each year. With 
the exception of one case, Ms. 
Kennedy commented, "I cannot 
recall anyone ever dieing as a result 
of a blow job." 

Ms. Kennedy believes that it is a 

move toward Socialism which is 
necessary in order to cause people 
to understand how to attack the 
problems that most affect them. 
In attacking Massachusetts 
officials, she stated, "You have 
these county officials, these local 
officials, and these state repre- 
sentatives, that vote against rights 
for homosexuals, that vote against 
money for hospitals, that vote to 
close down libraries, that vote to 
raid union pensions. Let's turn the 
other way on these asshole, rascist, 
red, white and blue Southies who 
march against black people in 
Boston. For your purposes, I think I 
should tell you what I mean by the 
red, white and blue contingent. I 
mean the red neck, white trash and 
blue collars." 

She continued, "I have never 
been so disappointed in anything as 
I have been in Massachusetts 
power in letting that shit get to the 
point that it has, and that is what

An open letter 

Reorganization reservations 


Curiosity seekers 

I'm going to Philadelphia on July 

And I'm really not sure why. 

Oh, I certainly believe in equality 
for all, and freedom for colonies 
and territories (if the majority of 
their people choose separation) and 
full employment, but I certainly 
don't consider myself a budding 
revolutionary. (A blooming idiot, 
possibly, but that's neither here nor 

Other people have their reasons, 
they have rationales for going, why 
don't I? I've tried looking at other 
points of view, but none of them 
seem to fit me. 

Some are going to show their 
solidarity with, and strike a blow 
for, the Socialoid-Communoid 
struggle. I'd probably be that way 
myself if I didn't think that the Left 
was at least as dangerous in the 
long run as the Right. One group 
wants to turn me into a cipher in 
their law and order computers while 
the other wants to turn me into 
another work unit in the collective 
self. I can accept neither side. I 
suffer from an ailment known a« ♦o 
some as Excessive Individualism 
and I refuse to follow anyone's 
ideologies but my own. 

Some people are going bbcause 
they think that the media coverage 
of the demonstration will cause the

awakening of Ame'=c-'b great 
Silent Majority. Well, I expect that 
the media will probably not be 
covering the same demonstration 
that I'll be at, even if they're in the 
front row. This is not really im- 
portant, however, since even if they 
were, the conservative press would 
comment on the long-haired 
protestors and the outside agitators 
while the liberal press would make 
iheir usual comments on the 
dedicated youth and the con- 
science of America. And those 
members of the American public 
that want to hear what is said there 
will listen with rapt attention whilfi 
•those who don't will mutter 
something about the filthy hippies 
and turn the channel. 

And then there are those people 
who here the word strike and grow 
all quivery in the knees. They're the 
ones who, for all I know, have wet 
dreams about being one of the 
"Philadelphia 15", unjustly accused 
by the reactionary lackeys of Major 
Rizzoand serving as a rallying point 
for the movement. 

Well, getting busted and seeing 
the inside of a Philadelphia 
jailhouse is not my idea of the 
capper to a great day, nor is getting 
knocked upside the head by the 
City of Brotherly Love's Riot Squad 
my idea of fun. 

Finally, I suppose, are the 
curiosity seekers, the bicentennial 
summer soldiers and assorted other 
uncommitted minorities, one of 
which minorities, I guess, is me. 

But I still don't know why I feel 
compelled to go. 

Maybe I will when I get back.

To the editor: 

The faculty of the University of Massachusetts- 
Amherst wishes to share with its fellow citizens our 
deep concern with the current moves to reorganize 
public higher education in the Commonwealth. As 
long time participants in the effort to make all levels of 
education available to all qualified citizens of the state 
we now feel obligated to communicate directly to 
those we serve our reservations with the various 
proposals, some of which may inflict serious damage 
10 the only system of higher education dedicated to 
the needs of common men and women. 

Jhe procedure being followed substitutes haste and 
secrecy for deliberation and openness. The substance 
of the proposed reorganization substitutes uniformity 
and centralization for institutional diversity and local 
initiative and responsibility. Administration directly 
affects teaching and research on campus and a 
highly centralized system of public higher education 
governed essentially from a single office in Boston 
threatens the quality of education offered at the 
public community colleges, state colleges and 
universities. Therefore, we respectfully bring to the 
attention of the people of the state and to their ser- 
vants, the President of the University of Massachu- 
setts, the Board of Trustees, the Governor, and the 
General Court the following concerns: 

1. The procedure by which reorganization is being 
sought does not lend confidence that the public in- 
terest IS being served. We are alarmed at the apparent 
haste with which this important matter is being 
pursued. No one has made a convincing case to the 
public for the precipitous reorganization of public 
higher education. We know of no study of the present 
system on which the proposed consolidation might be 

We urge establishment of a study commission 
patterned on the Willis- Harrington Commission from 
whose earlier careful efforts the current organization 
of public higher education springs. """'^^^'on 

In examining thoroughly this complex matter a 
study commission could hear all sides and weigh' in 
particular the experience of other states which have 
chosen the path of centralization, as revealed in the 
Newman, Byrne, Foote, Perkins, Carnegie, and other 
respected studies. 

We ask that when a definitive proposa' is com- 
mitted to writing, it be made public ar.d be the subject 
of open heanngs and the fu.lest public debate. We ask 
ihat students and facu1:v have opportunity to 
comment on a proposal of sue, Importance, concern- 

'"^u^^I^ll ^^®^ "^^^ ^® expected to offer useful in- 
sights. Why abolish a working system of governance 
which has developed gradually through decades of 
practical experience on each campus, suddenly and 
withc t considering the judgment of experienced 
cam( s faculty and administrators? 

2. V e express grave concern at the 
bureaucratization and centralization of public higher 
education in the reorganization proposals. In par- 
ticular, we have seriojs reservations about the ability 
oTa28-person boara to govern 30 diverse institutions 
and hence it is our belief that in practice most of the 
managing will be done by the Chancellor, who with 
his great powers will become the Czar of public higher 
education. ** 

And no one has furnished evidence that cen- 
tralization and state-wide regulation lead to im- 
provement in the quality of college education or to 
efficiency and economy. We agree emphatically with 
the recent Carnegie report on the states and higher 
education, which stated: "We believe that the burden

eluding admission and graduation standards 'thj 
initiatiori, merging, or termination of programs, 'longl 
range planning, budget development, appointment 
evaluation, and promotion of colleagues and ad' 
ministrators, and the like. 

We urge recognition of the continuing value of the 
^riure system in providing an experienced, com. 
mitted faculty to serve an institution through goo<* 
years and bad. Who is likely to love a college more 
and serve it better: Administrators in a central office in- • 
Boston or the faculty and administrators on campus

the campuses, not to support officials in a remote \

We hope that out of a process of open public I 
discussion, freed of taint of secrecy, unexplained^' 
haste or unexplored purpose, will emerge a bill that/' 
truly serves the public interest. Such a bill will not 
create a Super-Central Board and a Super-Chancellor 
to run all the public higher education institutions in a 
detailed, bureaucratic manner. I 

The strength of our institutions is in their individual! 
histories, character, students and faculty and their 
governing procedures reflecting years of growth and^ 
experience. A sudden attempt to impose a central ' 
uniform system over all the public colleges and 
universities threatens the quality of education at these 

Massachusetts needs no king of higher education.

The 'liberaV approach 

As Snoopy says, "Never do today what you can put 
off until tomorrow," or in terms of the Towards 
Tomorrow Fair," For better or for worse, the future 
will be different than today was." 

The biggest problem I had with the whole shindig 
this weekend, was the lack of a sound political or 
Ideological stance. The title of the affair connotes to 
me a time in which progressive, viable alternatives to 
the existing problems of Amerika would be presented 
tor people to seriously contemplate. Perhaps the 
committee in charge of coordinating the fair did not 
want people to be serious - then why was so much 
money spent? 

For those of you who missed or boycotted the 
event, allow me to point out some of the highlights of 
the weekend. 

In case you don't get ero«'„n exercise, there is still 
plenty of garbage and littb. to be picked up, left 
behind by the 17,000 people who came here seeking 
new Ideas for the future. I wonder if it is an indication 
of what IS in store for Mothe. Larth to be covered with 
this self-expression called littering? 

The committee is to be commended for their hard 
work and efforts in bringing such a wide range of 
speakers and presentations to the Valley, but I felt like 
a character out of Alvin Tolfer's book "Future 
bhock scurrying around, synchronized mentally and 
physically, by the hour, on the hour, in an attempt to 
get the most out of the little time there was. 

Perhaps the people who came here to learn some- 
thing would have learned more if the event was 
spaced out over a few more days, enabling one tc 
reflect and grasp the new ideas that were thrown out 
before having to dash through the maddening crowds 
to get to the next presentation. 

I understand that the committee was responsible 
or inviting such socially immoral and decadent people 
Nke Fascist Meldrin Thompson and Joyce Davidson 
due to, the regrettable fact that the University 
provided funding for the affair. For this reason, it was 
mamlatory that both sides of any story wer^ to be 

This liberal approach could have been avoided if the 
University did not play such an important financial 

The main objection I have to the 'open forum' of 
Ideas for the weekend was the presence of Joyce 
Davidson, advocate of the Total Woman, anti- 
feminist, who preaches self-s&crifrce to please the 
whims, fetishes and fantasies of fascists, Amerikanly 
called husbands. 

I dare anyone to tell me this is a progressive, viable 
alternative to the paradigm we know as sexism. The 
argument that I have heard from staff of the fair is that 
there were many more feminists present than Joyce 

Well, I noticed many booths, presentations and 
speakers on the subject of Third World peoples 
struggles, liberations and movements, but what I 
didn't see was the other side of the story. Nowhere to 
be seen was anyone advocating political repression, 
genocide or the lynching of blacks. 

Don't you think it's about time that people start 
taking seriously the struggles of women, in this 
country and around the world and work towards the 
^ucation of those who don't have an analysis of the 
situation, rather than letting she-pigs like Joyce, run 
off at the mouth inviting women to wallow in her shit?

ebaters agree on centralization points 

• layes comfl tnsAo a cumrYmr c-..,.« oi .:_i-. _■ 

W^D^E^P/XY, ;UfciE 30, 1976 

Billeo u„ ihe highlight of the New 
England Solar Energy Association's 
conference (remember the two-day 
event preceding the Toward 
Tomorrow Fair?) was a debate 
between Herman Kahn and 
Steward Brand that attracted a 
Campus Center Auditorium 
audience of 650 last Friday af- 

Kahn, whose physique, gray 
beard and rollicking laugh might 
have had some believing they had 

come to see a summer Santa Claus, 
walked on stage as Brand tacked a 
"Whole Earth" banner on the 
Auditorium's red stage curtain. 

As ihe moderator of the debate, 
an editor of the Maine Times, 
spelled out the ground rules of the 
debate, the onstage trio had 
trouble figuring out just what 
exactly was the subject of the 

Once the subject was settled (the 
merits of centralization), Kahn, 
wearing a digital watch that goes 

* Kennedy warms crowd 

fight along with his tag of 
renowned futurist" was given 25 
minutes for an introduction. Then 
Brand was given the same op- 
portunity, but took only 15 minutes, 
speakmg of "adaptability" as ari 
important term. "Very large 
systems don't learn very well. Small 
systems are much more adap- 
table, " Brand said. 

After Brand finished speaking, 
the debate switched back to Kahn, 
who talked about the type of future 
he would like to see. Kahn, who has 

written two books about the future 
from an econon -; perspective, 
cited an early vision of Thomas 
Jefferson - that of a small, elected 
national defense. 

'The most important reason for a 
highly centralized control (national 
defense) is not there," Kahn said. 

Brand stated, "I see the ideal 
system as or.e that is stable in 
time." "I believe in a more tribal 
civilization," the creator and editor 
of the Whole Earth Catalog, who 
has a strong biological background 


"has inspired me to demand from 
this day forward ... that socialism 
be taken out of the closet." 

Taking concern with the cor- 
porations' monopolization of the 
prices of consumer products, Ms. 
Kennedy emphasized that the only 
way citizens were going to help 
stop the spiraling effect which price 
increases are taking, would be to 
boycott the largest one hundred 
advertising firms and their 
•espective products. 

She admitted, "I really think that 
even the Socialists have failed to 
express the sense to which we have 
neglected to use our dolli, power 
to corral some of the total anar- 
chtical attitudes of the business 
delinquents that dominate our 
society. And the business 
delinquents have a sort of asshole 
buddy relationship with govern- 

So, it's sometimes hard to know 
if It's the government delinquents 

egging on the business delinquents 
or vice- versa." 

Ms. Kennedy summed up her 
address with what she considered 
to be the three major concerns 
which people should hold about our 
society, "We need to have a buying 
strike against the major national 
advertisers that would affect the 
media, it would bring down prices. 

The inflationary effect of ad- 
vertising on your budget is one of 
the easiest things to eliminate ... 
Some sizeable community of us 
must demand the end to all military 
spending ... We must bring 
socialism out of the closet." 

The lime was now 6:15 p.m., 
some of the audience had already 
begun to filter out of the Ballroom, 
and an anti-climatic question and 
answer period began. But, nearly 
an hour later when Florynce 
Kennedy walked out of the 
auditorium, a bit of her dynamic 
spirit could still be felt in the room.

think of the fair?'

When asked, "What did you 
!hink of the Toward Tomorrow 
Fair?" Ihe responses from those at 
he fair were favorable. 

Frances Crowe answered, "I 
learned a lot and found people rrost 
responsive and interesting." Crowe 
did a prison workshop, showing 
slides concerning active non- 
violence and another on how China 
solved drug addiction. 

"I wish ihat the area outside was 
more integrated between the social 
activists and the technology and 
crafts," she said. "I conducted a 
seminar on the B-1 Bomber and 
Rockwell, the builder, was also 
here. We should have worked more 
closely in that area." 

Gary Rosenburg from the Center 
for Science in the Public Interest, 
was full of praise, saying, "It's a 
good opportunity for education. 
Instead of reading, people are 
seeing and doing, interacting and 
asking questions. It's great." 

Britt Colbert replied, "Very good 
and a fair amount of visitors. There 
are problems of the captive 

audience, but here you have mostly 
young or very 'with it' adults 

Tina Berins from Amherst was so 
busy serving people organic and 
baked goods that she barely had 
■ime to say she would like to come 
back again next year. 

James Kaltsas, an apple grower 
from Worcester, was picking out 
!he best in the barrel at 10 cents an 
apple He said, "This place is more 
like a circus than a fair. They should 
have better circulation." 

Other crafts complained of poor 
business because of their locations. 
A leather creator from Millers Falls 
complained, "I haven't even made 
:he $20 entrance fee yet." Another 
fifty per cent of the crafts people 
from Saturday never came back 
:oday," she said. 

Sandra Levinson said, "One 
advantage of the Fair is bringing 
people together." 

A, man from Northampton said 
he was caught off guard by the 
steep price of admission. "I had to 
pay nine bucks for my family which 
left me little for lunch," he said.

"Every day brings its own 
rewards," said Scott Nearing. "You 
don't have to wait until Friday." 


But the problem with the 
meeting of the two men was that 
there were not enough clear-cut 
differences concerning the issue. I.i 
fact, they agreed on many points. 
One area they did disagree on 
was the way in which goals are 
achieved. Kahn noted that he was 
willing to see damage done to 
achieve a goal. Brand did not think 
that was justifiable. 

Both agreed that "the govern-

Trustees establish ad hoc task force 


By Teresa Hanafin 

An ad hoc task force has been 
esta: lished by the UMass Board of 
Trustees in an effort to keep up 
with all the current drafts and 
amendments to a bill to reorganize 
public higher education in Massa- 

in the fourth meeting of the 
trustees this month, members of 
the board were unable to vote 
whether to accept or to reject any 
drafts because of the volume of 
amendments and further drafts of 
the bill which are constantly being 

A proposal. Senate Bill 1371 
introduced by Senate President 
Kevin B. Harrington last November 

has undergone three drafts since 
that time and numerous amend- 
ments have been introduced by 
such groups as the faculty senate at 
UMass-Amherst and state 
secretary of educational affairs Paul 
Parks in conjunction with Gov 
Michael S. Dukakis. 

UMass President Robert C. 
Wood said the committee will study 
the latest drafts and amendments 
and will summarize and report on 
each to the full board. 

The board, in turn, will then vote 
whether to accept or reject each 
amendment or draft.

By Jim Jordan 

The International Indian Treaty 
Council, sitting in Yankton Territory 
in Eastern South Dakota, held its 
second conference on June 13-20 
to discuss the movement of Native 
American peoples toward 
economic self-sufficiency, self- 
determination and sovereignty. 

With over 500 Native par- 
icipanis, including representatives 
from the American Indian 


Blue Crass 


Movement (AIM) and the Board of 
Governors of the Council, the 
people in attendance, representing 
25-50 Indian nations, discussed 
methods of developing natural 
resources and of putting the case of 
:he colonization of Native American 
peoples before ihe United Nations 
Decolonization Committee and the 

The overall iheme of the week- 
long event was a push by Native 
Americans to go outside the ac- 
cepted modes of petitioning the 
U.S. government to exercise their 
rights as a sovereign nation in 
seeking development aid and 
support from other countries. 

Russell Maens, an AIM leader 
and organizer of the Conference 
emphasized the need for Indian 
people logo beyond the dependent 
relationship with the U S 
controlled Bureau of Indian /ffafrs, 
and talk and join with other lations 
as equals. 

Melvin Gerault, a leader of the 
Lakota (Sioux) Nation from 
Cheyenne River territory in South 
Dakota, presented to the Con- 
ference the importance of the 1868 
Treaty between the Lakota and the 
U.S. He laid out clearly that Indian 
people must realize that the pursuit 
of self-determination "is a game no 

The 1868 Treaty is a powerful 
document in that it clearly states 
'he recognition of Lakota 
sovereignty by the U.S. 

'It is an awesome respon- 
sibility," Gerault said, "to bear 
witness to what we must do for the 

During the week of presentations 
and workshops, the general 
assembly heard from many leaders 

who represent many fronts of the 
movement. From AIM, John 
Trudell, Clyde Bellecourt and Ted 
Means reported on the current 
status of the "Treaty fight" in 
different parts of the U.S. Oren 
Lyons, a chief of the Six Nations 
(Iroquois) Confederacy in upstate 
New York and Canada, spoke of 
how the Confederacy has main- 
lained its sovereignty throughout a 


history of attempted colonization 
by the U.S. He synthesized the 
political and spiritual aspects of the 
Conference with "Sovereignty is 
the equality of all life". 

Of all the ideas and work areas 
heard from, the key was the work 
being done by the members of the 
Treaty Council office at the United 
Nations, Since this office was 
established at the first Treaty 
Conference in Standing Rock 
South Dakota in 1974, the 
representatives there have ' made 
contact and developed relations 
with several foreign countries. 

At the present time, the Council 
IS seeking membership in the 
Organization of Petroleum Ex- 
porting Countries (OPEC) for 
purposes of getting loans anc 
iechnical assistance toward the 
developing of gas, coal and oil on 
Indian territories. 

Also, the Treaty Office is workinc 

'oward using the United Nations as 

a forum for the discussion of the 

colonial status of Indian people. In 

that line, Jimmie Durham the 

designated Treaty Council 

representative, has approached 

three international bodies for 

support in getting the Indian 

question before the Decolonization 


These three bodies, the 
Organization of African Unity the 
League of Arab States and' the 
Organization of non-Aligned 
States, are the groups that Durham 
hopes to receive support from in 
I his opening up of international 
action and discussion on the status 
of Native Americans. 

In a document that came out of 
the Conference called the "Red 
Paper," the Treaty Council has 
accused the United States of

Conterence services make 


By John Silletto 

Is your club or organization 
planning a conference? Maybe the 
Uriiversity Conference Services can 
help. The conference services 
located in the Campus Center' 
specializes in making meetings and 
conferences go smoothly, whether 
'he conference budget is large or 

The University Conference 
bervices represent a division of 
Student Affairs. The purpose is to 
promote self-sufficiency for the 
Campus Center through full 
utilization of the facilities. 

According to Anet Dunne 
marketing director for the 
University Conference Services 
revenue raised through (Con- 
ferences will help lower the campus 
center fee, or at least hold it down 
'o its present level. 

Dunne stated that she would like 
to see a 95-98 per cent occupancy 

easy sailing 

rate at the Campus Center hotel. 
This would not only produce 
greater revenue from hotel room 
rent, but would also lead to in- 
creased business for the campus 
center restaurants. University 
Bookstore and the student craft 
vendors. The advantages of this 
would be the creation of more 
student jobs, she said. 

An additional advantage of 
having conferences on campus is 
that the reputation of the University 
in business and academic com- 
munities would be enhanced 
through increased exposure, ac- 
cordina to Dunne. 

The conflict of student activities 
and paying conferences competing 
for available space is a major 
problem. "An ideal situation 
doesn't exist," Dunne remarked. 
The use of Campus Center facilities 
will, for revenue producing con- 
ferences, create conflicts with, 
student use. But student <jse will 

not help lower the campus center 
fee. Dunne said she hopes to find a 
workable compromise between 
provoding student availability of 
campus center facilities and still 
generating outside revenues to help 
reduce the Campus Center fee. 

For this venture, the conference 
service^concentrates on filling the 
Campus Center facilities during the 
summer and intercession periods 
when student use is at a mirwnum. 
The conference service;? 
specializes in groups who are in- 
terested in learning. They can draw 
on University faculty and staff to 
provide expert and interesting 
speakers on almost any subject. 
The Conference services have 
worked with camera clubs, 
engineering meetings, youth 
organizing, and most recently the 
Toward Tomorrow Fair. Bob Kahn, 
public relations director for the fair, 
said, "They were great, we couldn't 
have done it wittiout them." 



* America's most lasting product:

Sitting here listening and 
thinking in the --ude (the proper

Afro-American and other ethnic blues and somewhere in The

Summer concert scene 



Emmy Lou Harris — rising from the shadows 

By Craiy Roche 

The life of the performer, not like 
the super star, is filled with 
frustrations that can block and 
rnake him- her k)se sight of the goal 
of communication from the artist to 
the audience. And if it were not for 
places like the Music Inn in 
beautiful Lenox, Mass. there woukl 
likely be many more burn-outs on 
natiorMi tours. 

For the performer, Lenox's Music 
inn is truly a breath of fresh air. It is 
an outdoor, natural amphitheater 
that seats a crowd of 4,000 com- 
fortably; coolers, kids, frisbees and 
all. It was in this perfect atmos- 
phere tfiat two first-rate per- 

formers, Emmy Lou Harris and 
Jesse Colin Young, came to en- 
tertain Friday evening. 

Emmy Lou oper\ed the show to 
an immediately enthusiastic 
reception. I was seeing het for the 
first time and had read where she 
was a mercurial performer, some- 
times intimidated by the stage. She 
exhibited no fear, only familiarity at 
the Inn. 

Perhaps it was due to the sen- 
sitive and always steady backing 
she receiving from her fellow 
musicians, the Hot Band. And they 
were hot. Performing most of the 
tunes from her two Warner Bros, 
albums, Harris rocked and soothed 

the audience, all the while. 

Cradling a huge acoustic guitar, 
she belted out all of my favorites 
Hike "Boulder to Birmingham", 
"Bluebird Wine", and 'Feeling 
Sir>gle, Seeing Double") and won 
me over to some of her more truly 
country tunes, like "Coat of Many 

I was reminded of Linda Ron- 
stadt at times, because she, like 
Linda, has a clear, strong voice, but 
Emmy Lou has yet to get as deeply 
into some of her music as Linda 
has. That is not to say she is 
treating her music at all super- 
ficially, merely that she's not had 
the same good fortune as Linda has 
to perform some of the finest songs 
being written today. 

She has come out from the 

shadow of being Gram Parson" s 
back up vocalist, and now is her 
own self of the stage. Perhaps it is a 
parallel to the women's liberation 
movement that f.o many strong ard 
talented women are now uut 
fronting bai-sds and not becoming 
dominated by them. 

Jesse Colin Young was no 
stranger to the crowd at the Music 
Inn, either. Here is a performer who 
has been at the star game for a 
good ten years, and is rightfully and 
finally gaining the stature he has 
earned. There was little new, and 
consequently little unfamiliar, in his 
show. Most of it came from his 
current RCA album "On the Road." 

But all of the songs were infused 
with a deep and mellow good 
feeling that capped a perfect 
summer evening for me. 

I have complained about Young's 
recent few albums, because he is 
becoming so mellow he is in danger 
of sotting too bland, too sappy for 
me. But the audience was easily 
his, and I was won over quickly. 

Maybe it was a case of being in 
the right place at the right time, but 
whatever, there were no rough 
edges in the night"s show. The cold 
wine, the summer night, and the 
excellent music all added up to as 
perfect an experience as I could 

The Lenox Music Inn is running a 
series of fine summer shows, a 
Fourth of July Reggae show and a 
July 18 performance by the Band 
are just two upcoming events that 
could keep the area buzzing for a 
long time. 

Colt Park's first —YES! 




Harris ... out of the shadows. 

Exclusive En^agementt 

By Scott Hayes 

A new concert facility in Hart- 
ford, called Colt Park was given its 
first test recently with the opening 
concert of a summer series that 
featured the Pousette Dart Band 
and Yes. 

Thousands of concert-goers 
gathered outside the park"s locked 
gates awaiting the official opening. 
Once the gates were opened, the 
crowd pushed and shoved its way 
into the five-acre facility. 

Intermittent showers then 
slowed the show down making it a 
long evening for the assembly of 
30,000 who waited two hours for 
the Pousette Dart Band to play for 
twenty minutes. 

The Dart Band played a handful 
of songs, including their "hit" that

is being pushed by Columbia 
Records, "What Can I Say.'" 

The weather affected Yes' 
performance. The British group did 
not open with orchestrated music 
from the "Firebird Suite," which 
has become a trademark of Yes, 
but instead played the beginning of 
"And You and I'" before drifiting 
into "Siberian Khatru" from 

Yes then moved on to the album 
RELAYER, playing "Sound 
Chaser"", which was complemented 
by the always-sound lighting of the 
group. "The Gates of Delerium" 
was played next before Jon An- 
derson, the group's vocalist, 
highlighted an acoustic version of 
"Long Distance Runaround."' 

The crowd approved of the next 
selection, "Your Move"" (I've seen 
all good people turn their heads 
each day so satisfied Tm on my 
way....) which was followed by 
some solo efforts by keyboard 
player Patrick Moraz and Anderson 
filling an unfamiliar role as he 
played harp. 

Guitarist Steve Howe, who used 
seven differeht guitars during the 
night, took the spotlight on "The 
Clap", a guitar solo from THE YES 

'"Heart of the Sunrise"" and ""The 
Ritual-Nous Sommes du Soleil," a

As the stage filled with a smoke 
through which the milti-colored 
lasers pierced, three arm-like 
gadgets above the group moved. 

Then Yes exited, leaving 30,000 
people screaming for more. And 
the best was yet to come. 
"Roundabout" resulted in some 
unified hand-clapping and when 
Yes left the stage for a second time,

appeared in motion pictures, 
repertory theatre, and both on and 
off Broadway plays including 
"Cotton Comes to Harlem", "The 
Slave", "Dutchman", and "The 
Iceman Cometh". 

During the early 1840's, Douglass 
protested against segregated 
seating on railroad trains by sitting 
in cars reserved for Whites. He had 
to be dragged from the cars. 
Douglass also protested against 
religious discrimination. He once 
walked out of a church that kept 
Blacks from taking part in a service 
until all the whites had finished 

Douglass founded an arrti-slavery 
newspaper in 1847. He charged that 
employers hired white immigrants 
ahead of Black Americans. His 
home was a station on the un- 
derground railroad that helped 
runaway slaves reach freedom. 

"Frederick Douglass" is free and 
open to the public. For further

By R.S. Gordon 

Craemen Gethers will be at- 
tending Hampshire Superior Court 
Northnrnpton Courthouse on 
Thursday, July 1 at 2 p.m. Gethers 
is a third year math student at 
UMass Amherst and was tried, 
convicted and sentenced to 8-10 
years in prison a little more than a 
year ago. Along with Gethers, 
UMass athletic star Earl Brown was 
convicted on the same charge of 
armed robbery in September of 
1975 and sentenced to 3-5 years in 
prison. Although neither of the two 
men knew each other prior to the 
indictments both men were tried 
and convicted by an all white jury 
who, many people feel, blatantly 
disregarded the factual evidence 
placed before the Court in behalf of 
the students. 

On August?, 1974, there was an 
armed robbery of McDonald's on 
route 9 in Hadley Mass where 
approximately $1200.00 was taken 
from the register at gunpoint, 
supposedly by three Black males. 
After the incident was reported, 
police went directly to the personal 

1.0. files of the University and 
pulled the pictures of one Craeman 
Gethers and one Robert Earl 
Brown. Standard procddwres such 
as line-up, telephone priviledges, a 
copy of the citizen's rights and 
warrants were ignored and the two 
students were identified by their 
pictures alone. Gethers had ob- 
tained a medical receipt from nis 
doctor stating that Craemen was 
injured and on crutches at the time 
of the robbery and was not 

nine years to go 


physically able to commit such a 
crime. Earl Brown was convicted 
even though one of the 
prosecu'ion's witnesses positively 
identified the wrong photo, one not 
of Earl Brown but that of a previous 
student at UMass. 

In a special interview with 
"Roots" yesterday, Earl Brown, 
who is currently attending summer 
school at UMass on a work-release 
program from Hampshire County 
prison had this to say on the 
Gethers case upcoming this 
Thursday, July 1 at 2 p.m. "By all 
means, I strongly urge all people 
who can make it to attend 
Craemen's trial. To quote Craemen 
from a previous issue of 
"Grassroots", the People's 
Newsweekly, 'it could happen to 
anybody.' I am aware that there will 
be those who will say that they are 
unable to make it because of time, 
however, if the Government can 
make time to put us away, then 
surely we all can make time to 
insure that justice is done."

AngOlfl* mercenary trial 


LUANDA, Angola [LNS\ - "The 
Angolan prosecutor knows where 
the blame should be placed," the 
American defense lawyer said in his 
final statement in the trial of 13 
captured British and American 
mercenaries here. "Time and time 
again he mentioned names of 
people who should be in the 
defendant dock." 

The prosecutor has stated in his 
final argument that Lhe "empty 
places in the deck" should be 
occupied by Gerald Ford; Henry 
Kissinger; Mobutu Sese Seku, the 
president of neighboring Zaire; and 
the others responsible for what has 

come to be known as Angola's 
"Second War of Liberation." 

The second war, following 
almost a decade and a half of 
colonial war, lasted less than a year. 
But it was very vicious and when all 
else had failed. Western powers, 
including the U.S., Great Britain 
and South Africa, threw a hastily- 
organized force of mercenaries into 
Angola in a final attempt to prevent 
an MPLA victory. 

Despite their agreement on 
where the overall responsibility lies, 
the prosecution and the defense 
differed on what penalty the 
defendants should suffer. The 
prosecutor, longtime MPLA 
militant Manuel Rui Monteiro, 
called for the penalty of death as a 
form of "both preventative as ^'Cii 
as punitive" justice, as ' lew 
groups of mercenaries are forming 
right now to leave to fight •" 

BOSTON: Racial 
Tensions Pealc 

Racial tensions peaked in the North Dorchester section of Boston last 
week. Heavy fighting was reported between White and Black ycuths on 
Bellevue Street near the Uphams Corner area on Tuesday and Wednesday 
J'jne22 and 23. On Tuesday night more than 100 Blacks and Whites were 
involved in what appeared to be a small scale civil war using bricks, bottles, 
hockey sticks and baseball bats as weapons. 

On Wednesday four policemen were injured as they again tried to break 
'jp fighting between the two groups during the second day of racial 
fighting in the Bellevue Street area. A major Boston news sen/ice reports 
that four Blacks have been arrested in connection with the racial con- 
frontations. An eyewitness said thji the inc'dent began when roaming 
groups of white youths rode through Bellevue il^reet shouting racial slurs 
at blacks playing basketball in a nei rby court. Ano her youth reported that 
the fighting began after his van was hit by a rock alkdgedly thrown by one 
of the Black youths. Roots was ir formed by Marihall Ellis, cab driver, 
resident and family man in the racially torn city for ct least a decade that 
newspaper reports have been bias and consistently incorrect. "It was more 
like 100 Whites fighting 100 Blacks, and this is not the first time that racia 
fighting has taken place in that area. I urge all people Black or White to 
remain calm, stay in their own perspective area> and always orotect 
yourself. The streets are just not safe, especially if /ou are unfamiliar with 
the area." 

Meanwhile, Boston police arrested South Boston resident Andrew Zuis, 
last week and charged him with possession of an infernal machine after an 
explosion ripped through the bedroom of his first floor apartment at 1063 
Dorchester Ave. in Dorchester. According to Police Deputy Si'perin 
tendent Joseph Rowan, the explosion was caused by a pipe bomb and an 
"undetermined amount of dynamite" was found in the debris. Rowan said 
that two rifles, gunpowder, a box of railroad flares and 12 detonating caps 
were found also. Zuis was not home at the time and no injuries were 
reported in the explosion. 

Zuis, who is 33, married and has two stepchildren told police that he was 
a member of the South Boston Marshals, a neighborhood defense 
operation. Zuis has also been confirmed as a member of ROAR (Restore 
our alienable rights), a group formed to stop the court ordered 
desegregation of Boston's Public School System. Bail was originally set at 
$150,000.00 but was later reduced to $50,000.00. He is currently free on 

But the British and the American 
defense lawyers argued that the 
defendants were "casualties of 
capitalism." If the Angolan 
People's Revolutionary Tribunal 
PL'S ■ all ihe blame on the thir- 
teen," Robert Cesner, the 
American lawyer argued, "it will be 
saying that those others, tne people 
ap'i organizations responsible for 
iheir recruitment and financing, 
would not be culpable as well. But 
withoui the others the 13 would 
never have been in Angola."

''Dot dot di-di; dot dot dash... 


By Scon H..ves 

in case you haven't heard by 
now, Gil Scott HflfDn, Brian 
Jacksud and the Midnight t^and 
were in town Sunday night 

The group played for two hours 
and fifteen minutes (actually Heron 
and the Midnight Band did, but 
Jackson, vocalist Victor 3rown and 
bass player Danny Bowens) arrived 
late due to a btowout en route from 
Boston) before 1500 spectator- 
participants in the Fine Arts 
Center's Concert Hall. 

The show opened with an in- 
troduction corH»rning ihe type of 
music to expect from Heron and 
Company. "This band is different 
from most other bands " a person 
on stage told the audience. "Not 
only do they possess musical talent 
and showmanship, they also sing 
progressive politics." 

A member of the Cultural 
Worker's Collective followed with a 
reading of a poem, and the editor of 
Grassroots, the Third World 
newspaper on campus, spoks to 
the crowd before a concert official 
notified the gathering that there 
would be a delay and that the 
remaining band members were on 
their way to the Concert Hall. 

That was some thirty minutes 
before Heron appeared on stage to 
greet the patient and previously 
quiet crowd (there was a total delay 
of one hour and forty-five minutes). 

Heron went through two 
monologues before explaining the 
percussion set-up of the Midnight 
Band, which consists of drummer 
Reggie Burbank, Barnett Williams 
(later introduced at the doctor of 
drumology and the audience 
"discovered why) and Tony 
Wilkinson. The band played two 
percussion oieces with some 
saxaphone background from Bilal 
Suli Ali. Using a wide range of 
percussion instruments, inc uding 
several variations of congas and an 
embi.-d, the Band played a pair of 
interesting numbers. 

Heron then explained that the 
band's mascot was a gorilla, 
"whether you spell it g-o-r-i-l-l-a or 

A song entitled, "I Believe That 
I'll Be Free in My Lifetime," 
followed from the album FROM 

A mellow song from WINTER IN 
AMERICA was played next called 
"Your Daddy Loves You." 

"Did They Hear What You Said," 
was preceded by an explanation of 
the meaning of the song by Heron. 

Another cut from the album, FROM 
CAROLINA, "Did they hear...." is 
about the nuclear waste factory in 
Barnesville, South Carolina and the 
potential hazards to the people 
living in the area. During the song, 
vocalist Brown came running on 

Brian Jackson and the rest of the 
group came on stage after the 
song, much to the pleasure of the 

"Never Went Home Again," a 
song from PIECES OF A MAN. 
initiated clapping and dancing in 
the audience, which pronr.pted 
Heron to reply after the number, 
"You should have let us known, we 
would have done it earlier." 

On "I Think I'll Call It morning 
From Now On," Brown displayed 
his exceptional vocal talents, 
singing a story to the crowd. A 
former UMass student. Brown 
sang, "I once was a student here so 
I know what I'm talkin' about." 

"Johannesburg", a cut termed 
"appropriate" by Heron due to the 
events in the South African city of 
late, followed. 

"Must Be Somethin' We Can 
Do," a song from FIRST MINUTE 
OF A NEW DAY," was performed 
next and "Offering" followed. 

The performers left the stage and 
came back to play "Ain't No Way 
To Be Free," which left the 1500 in 
attendance standing and shouting 
for "The Bottle" and "Winter in 

The noise in the Concert Hall 
reached a peak as the audience 
called Heron, Jackson and the 
Band back for a second encore and 
the crowd erupted after the first 
few notes of "The Bottle" were 

To use an old cliche, the show 
was "well worth waiting for", 
despite the hour and forty-five 
minute delay. 

Heron moved the audience both 
in words and music, and perhaps 
the ghetto code that he explained 
might have been useful for most of 
the 1500 who waited nearly two 
hours for the show. 

"Why the delay?" a spectator 
mighi have asked. 

Heron would have had one reply, 
"Dot dot di-di, dot dot dash; 
damned if I know."

VA hospital care: timely and compassionate? 

iy Jean Conley The hospital receives adenuatP Phwei^oii., m,...^.^ -*■ 

tiy Jean Conley 

This is the second article of a 
series looking at mental health care 
in the Northampton -Belchertown 

"Compassionate and timely care 
of high quality" is the Veterans' 
Administration medical care policy 
tacked up on the walls of the 
Northampton VA hospital. 

But, is the federal government, 
the funder of the institution, 
carrying out the policy it has 
authored? As far as timely care 
goes, it appears so. An ambulance 
is kept on the premisas, and 
Cooley-Dickinson hospital is only 
five minutes away if emergency 
surgery is needed. 

The hospital receives adequate 
funding for modern medical 
equipment, according to several 
hospital employees. 

But compassion? This is an area 
the employes have doubts about. 
"We get 'em fed, and we get 'em 
Washed. That's all we really have 
time to do," said one nursing aide. 

The problem with Northampton's 
VA hospital, obviously, is people. 

"People," said the same em- 
ployee, "Are. what make this 
hospital work or not work. You can 
have all ihe fancy equipment in the 
world, your doctors can have the 
best training in the world, but if you 
don't have enough people, you 
don't have a good hospital." 

Physically, Northampton's VA 
hospital is a clean, well-kept in- 
stitution. The corridor walls are 
freshly painted, the floors are 
scrubbed and waxed frequently, 
and bicentennial flags and posters 
hang on the walls. 

But as far as some of the patients 
are concerned, physical beauty 
means nothing. 

One World War II veteran on the 
geriatric ward was qick to point out 
that he "loved and appreciated" 
the hospital. 

"I gave a leg in 'the fight," he 
said. "And so they built for me, and 
others like me, this place to stay 
where I'm kept fed and relatively 
happy. But they don't have enough 

Ward bedrooms such as this one look much like barracks (Photo by Jean

UM receives budget increase 

By Scott Hayes 

After more than a semester of 
worrying about Gov. Michael S. 
Dukakis' axing of the University of 
Massachusetts budget at the 
Amherst campus^a $3.9 billion state 
budget was signed by the governor 
last Thursday. The budget included 
$106.75 million for UMass, an in- 
crease of nearly $5 million over the 
previous budget. 

The UMass-Amherst campus 
was appropriated $68.08 million, 
over three million dollars short of 
UMass President Robert C. Woods 
earlier request of $72 million. 

The appropriation does represent 
a 2.5 per cent increase over the 
fiscal 1976 budget of 64.4 million. 

Acting budget director for the 
Amherst campus, George Beatty, 
said that with the additional money 
the campus plans to fill about half 

of the 570 vacant faculty and staff 
positions. According to Beatty, the 
goal is to reduce the standing 
vacancy rate of 18 per cent to 10 
per cent. The university hopes to be 
able to fill many of those positions 
in time for the start of the fall 
semester, the budget director 

Dukakis made cuts throughout 
the state budget to release ad- 
ditional funds for the state 
Medicaid program. Included in the 
cuts were $626,749 cut at UMass- 
Boston and $600,000 cut in funds 
for the UMass hospital in Wor- 

According to the governor's 
office, those changes brought the 
allocations in those areas down to 
the level Dukakis had recom- 
mended in his initial budget 

Wood's office was funded at a 

level of $1.07 million which allows 
Wood to retain his rented office at 
One Washington Mall at least 
through June 30. 1977. Funds for 
his rented office space had been 
reduced by the House but were 
restored by the Senate. One more 
year remains in the three-year lease 
un the office suite. 

The governor had been repor- 
tedly planning to cut $2 million from 
the Amherst campus, but State 
Rep. James Collins (D-Amherst) 
and State Sen. John Olver (D- 
Amherst) met with Dukakis and 
apparently persuaded him not to 
make the cut. 

The budget retains the limits of 
merit pay increases. University 
employes who have not had cost- 
of-living adjustment for more than 
two years, however, will be getting 
the cost of living increases for state 
employes, according to Collins. 

Money for a federal matching 
funds program for scientific 
equipment was cut from $200,000 
to $100,000, but Collins said he 
expects that the cut as well as the 
overall $15 million in cuts made by 
the governor throughout the state 
budget will be restored by the 

people working here, so the ones 
(employees) I know can't visit me. 
They're too busy." 

That patient had been in and out 
of the hospital for 23 years, he said. 
"I have very little family, you see. 
So I discharge myself once in a 
while and go visit my daughter and 
her husband, but they got kids. So I 
always end up coming back here. I 
don't have much money, nobody'd 
take me after the war with my leg 
and all," he said. 

A blind Vietnam veteran who has 
been at the hospital for about a year 
was more critical, however. 

"We're all supposed to be crazy 
here," he said, "so nobody talks to 
us. But I tell you I get real sick of 
looking at all those old guys and 
hear them yelling about 'the big 
one'. I'm sure they're just as sicK of 
me as I am of them. I don't know. 
Maybe I'll get used to being here. I 
have to. Once you've been in a 
mental hospital you can't get a job. 
You're branded for life." 

The 'brand' may be the reason all 
but 50 of the hospital's 705 beds 
were occupied on Independence 
day, considering most of the 
patients can discharge themselves 
at any time. 

Patients cannot discharge them- 
selves w len they are signed into 
the hospital on a voluntary slip, a 
slip the admitting physician fills out 
if the patient is unable to do so. 
Most "voluntary slip" patients are 
admitted to the alcoholic wards and 
are put through the hospital's 
detoxification prOQram. Patients 
signing in on a voluntary slip can 
discharge themselves after three 
days, however. 

A nursing aide said the voluntary 
slip program often causes morale 
problems with the staff, because 
before midnight, two aides are sent 
with the unsedated patient to the 
alcoholic ward, and after midnight 
only one aide is sent. 

"The men that are admitted here 
during the night can be pretty 
dangerous," the aide said. "It's 

quite a hike from Admitting to the 
ward, and you have to walk out- 
side. With one aide, you never 
know if the guy is going to jump 
you. That's one reason why I left." 

The aide could not recall any 
specific cases of violence to 
hospital employes. 

Besides a program for alcoholics, 
Northampton's VA hospital has 
programs for the blind and oc- 
cupational therapy programs for 
amputees, as well as a drug 
rehabilitation center. 

The older vets, the ones who 
have spent most of their lives at the 
VA, "they just sit outside in 
summer, inside in winter, just 
waiting to die," the aide said.

No decision in Gethers hearing

By Ed Cohen 

A hearing for a new trial this past 
Thursday and Friday for Craemen 
Gethers, UMass student convicted 
of taking part in the 1974 robbery of 
McDonald's in Hadley, ended 
Friday with no definite decision 

Superior Court Judge George J. 
Haye will make a decision 
sometime during the next two 
weeks when he receives one last 
piece of evidence from Gether's 
attorney, Matthew Feinberg of 
Boston, and Polygraph Ad- 
ministrator William J. LaPaul. 

Feinberg asked the court to order 
a new trial to stay the execution of 
Gether's prison sentence, and to 
order a lie detector test for Gethers. 

The hearing opened on Thursday 
but was delayed because Gethers 
arrived late. LaParl, a 14-year 
veteran of the New York State 
Police Department, and an ex- 
perienced polygraph admi^istrator 
with Scientific Securities, testified 
that h« had administered a 

polygraph examination to Gethers 
on April 21 of this year. 

In question relating to whether or 
not Gethers had taken part in the 
robbery, LaParl concluded that 
Gethers had not taken part in the 
robbery when the polygraph 
registered "no deception" to 
several key questions during the 

Assistant District Attorney 
Stephen Kaplan questioned 
LaParl's expertise as a polygraph 
administrator, and LaParl stated 
that he had special training, he had 
reached the position of Sargeant 
with the New York State Police 
Department, and had administered 
over 10,000 examinations while 
employed at Scientific Securities. 
Witnesses Charles Council, Chris 
Waish, Carl Shelton and Steve 
Levenson also took the stand. 

Council told the court that he had 
seen Gethers several days before 
the robbery and had witnessed an 
accident on a basketball court 
where Gethers leg had been in- 

The morning of the robbery an 
employe of Southwest Student 
Affairs Office, Steven Levenson, 
who was working with Gethers in 
the Summer Housing Office, stated 
that he saw Gethers at work and on 

Gethers testified that ne had 
taken two lie detector tests, both 
tests giving evidence that he did 
not take part in the robbery. 

He also testified that previous 
lawyers working in his behalf had 
not adequately located witnesses. 

Judge Hayer will make a ruling as 
soon as he receives the notes which 
were written by LaParl during the 
course of the polygraph tests. 

Feinberg asked that the judge 
consider the privately administered 
test in the motion for a new trial, 
but asked that no decision be made 
until Gethers can take a court- 
ordered lie detector test, and use 
the results of that test in the 
decision whether or not to grant a 
new trial.

Commentary and reporting on the criminal justice 
system is at the core of First Amendment values for 
the operation and integrity ot that system is of crucial 
'mport to citizens concerned with the administration 
of government. Secrecy of judicial action can only 
breed ignorance and distrust of courts and suspicion

"Our liberty depends on the 
freedom of the press, and that 
cannot be United without 
being lost..." 

-Thomas Jefferson 1786 

Chief Justice Warren E. Burger cited writings of 
Thomas Jefferson concerning risks to private rights 
from an unrestricted press in the opinion of the court 
Jefferson had said, "In truth it is afflicting that a man 
who has past his life in serving the public ... should yet 
be liable to have his peace of mind so much disturbed 
by any individual who shall think proper to arraign him 
in a newspaper. It is however an evil for which there is 
no remedy. Our liberty depends on the freedom of the 
press, and that cannot be limited without being lost ... 

Justice William J. Brennan Jr. offered an absolutist 
view of the ""irst Amendment that was signed by 
Justices Potter Stewart and Thurgood Marshall as 
concurring opinions. 

Brennan stated, "The right to a fair trial by a jury of 
ones peers is unquestionably one of the most 
precious and sacred safeguards enshrined in the Bill 
of Rights. I would hold, however, that resort to prior 

restraints on the freedom of the press is a con- 
sm^utionally impermissible method for enforcing that 

Secrecy of judicial action can 
only breed ignorance and 
distrust of courts and suspicion

law and to comprehension of the 
functioning of the entire criminal 
justice system by subjecting it to 
the cleansing effects of exposure 
and public accountabih'ty.' 

-Justice William J. Brennan Jr. 1976 






The continuing struggle 

So many who were worried about the implications 
of the Nebraska murder case, in which Judge Hugh 
btuart issued a "protective order" limiting what the 
press could report can now feel at ease. Existing gag 
orders were struck down and it's understandable that 
the Reporters Committee on Freedom of the Press 
issued a statement calling the decision "a major 
victory for the First Amendment." 

Maybe the "victory" wasn't a total one, for the 
decision left some room for exceptions, but certainly 
the ruling of the high court was a step in the proper 
direction. ^ 

it is fitting to see that 190 years after Jefferson 
wrote from Paris about press attacks on John Jay his 
opinion would not be out of place in today's Supreme 
Court. It's kind of reassuring and the words ring 
louder now than they did in 1796. "Our liberty 
depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot 
be limited without being lost ... " 

At least the decision of a week ago made a lot of 
press people happy.

9:00 p.m. 

I was in Philadelphia this Fourth 
of July, having travelled with more 
than half a dozen busloads of the 
July 4th Coalition. We were there 
to demand and demonstrate for the 
same thing our forefathers fought a 
war over two hundred years ago - 

In 1776, the colonies of America 
were fighting for their freedom 
from England, from the "mother" 
country that was ruling the lives of 
the Americans without the citizens 
being allowed to have a say as to 
how they wanted to be governed. 
So, they formed a revolution and 
these early Americans severed ties 
with Britain. The leaders of the 
Revolition drew up a document 
which would insure all Americans 
of their "inalienable rights as 
humans" in regard to their "pursuit 
for happiness." 

Out founding fathers authored 
the Declaration of Independence so 
that it embodied simple truths and 
rights which would make it possible 
for peoples living in this country to 
coexist in harmony and peace with- 
out regard to race, sex, creed or 
color. But, the Declaration of In- 
dependence is only a piece of 
parchment; what words exist there, 
do so in theory alone. 

It demands action, caring and 
unselfishness to make those words 
in the Declaration come to life, and 
in the two hundred years since the 
birth of this nation, most Americans 
have remained deaf to the message 
the document preaches. 

Those who have been allowed to 
live their lives mostly as they please 
are those who have had the money 
to acquire whatever and whomever 
they choose, those who are male, 
and those who are white. Granted, 
there are white males who are 
oppressed, but not nearly as much 
so as are females and non-whites. 
We, as Americans, are still 
fighting for the right to govern our- 
selves as we see fit. Marching 

through the streets of northern 
Philadelphia, a black community, 
75,000 of us from as far away as 
Wisconsin and Florida demon- 
strated against racism, sexism and 
oppression of the working class. 
The people in the community had 
lined the streets before we even 
walked by. Some brought chairs 
out onto the sidewalks to sit upon, 
others leaned out of apartment 
windows to watch the parade go 
by, while still others climbed roof- 
tops in order to get a bird's eye 
view of the processions which 
passed them by. 

Most of the people simply sat 
and watched us go by without 
showing either irritation or hap- 
piness at this line of marchers, 
thousands strong, which winded its 
way through their community. 
There were others, though who 
responded positively toward us by 
chanting our slogans, waving to us, 
or marching with us. I wonder if the 
silent majority was due to apathy or 
because they were weary of 
fighting against the forces which 
have been oppressing them for 
more than two hundred years. 

At the culmination of our march, 
we entered a huge field in a park \n 
northern Philadelphia, and heard 
numerous speakers at the rally held 
there talk about racism, sexism, and 
workers oppression. The speeches 
were powerful and oftentimes 
brought the huge crowd to its feet, 
cheering. It was obvious that there 
were people who cared about the 
plight of the oppressed. 

I just think it's sad that there had 
to be a demonstration at all 
because that indicates to me how 
retarded the growth toward 
equality has been in America if in 
two hundred years we are still 
fighting for the same freedom our 
forefathers fought for two centuries

A whole page of letters to the editor 

It's opinion that makes a horse race' 

To the Editor: 

Concerning Charlotte Allen's, 
"The 'Liberal' Approach", in the 
Wed., June 30 edition, I find it hard 
to believe that a person who has 
accepted the position of publishing 
intelligent commentary to the 
public could suffer such mental 
distortion and misconceptions be- 
tween her subject snd her own 
personal shortsighted and 
prejudiced attitudes. I would like to 
clarify for this confused feminist 
that the purpose of the Toward 
Tomorrow Fair was to present 
ideas, in which the only stance 
reflected was our First Amend- 
ment, freedom of speech. 

So, to clear up Ms. Men's 
biggest problem, the reason no 
"sound political and ideological 
stance" could be found, was 
because there was never meant to 
be any. To put it bluntly, politics 
was hardly the issue at large. 
Furthermore, any ideological 
stance, by our democratic system, 
should be obtained personally, and 
not through the fascist means of 
one group instilling a one-sided 
view of our "progressive" future. 

In analogy, how would a person 
choose a dinner from a menu if 
there was only one food listed 
there? Perhaps Ms. Allen would 
have considered the fair far more 
"serious" and worth the dollars 
spent if there had been 50 feminist 
speakers, a stoning of Joyce 

Inmate needs 
a pen-pal 

To the Editor The Summer 
Collegian received a letter from the 
coordinator's office at Garland 
Junior College asKing that a letter 
written by Ervin Brooks, who has 
been imprisoned in Ohio for nearly 
a year be printed. Brooks' letter 
To the Editor: 

/ would be very appreciative if 
you would consider my letter well 
enough written to put in your 
school's newspaper. My name is 
Ervin Brooks and I have been in 
prison for almost one year and my 
main problem is lack of corres- 
pondence. If you would or could 
put my address in the school paper 
possibly someone will want a pen- 
pal from Ohio. You see, I'm lonely 
enough being here but without mail 
or any type of communication it's 
just that much worse. Letters 
should be addressed to Ervin 
Brooks 143-310, P.O. Box 787. 
Lucasville, Ohio 45648. 

Ervin Brooks 

Davidson and a careful screening of 
all the other speakers to make sure 
they shared a common political 
view, rather than the "open forum" 
variety of speakers and exhibits that 
was attempted. 

If, on Wednesday, when her 
commentary first appeared, any of 
Ms. Allen's readers followed her 
advice and went looking for the 
litter that supposedly still lingered, 
they might have been disappointed 
and slightly aggravated that our 
ecology -minded visitors left little 
behind and instead utilized the 38 
dumpsters that were scattered 
throughout. Again, I find it very 
poor journalistic quality to talk 
about litter, using imagination 
rather than fact, as a means of 
saying that 17,000 people at- 

To clear up another imaginative 
error, the fair committee was in full 

control of those who were invited 
to speak, and in reality, many more 
speakers were invited than the 50 
that had attended. The University 
had no influence whatsoever, as 
Ms. Allen incorrectly stated, in the 
invitations to Gov. Meldrim 
Thompson or Joyce Davidson, who 
she found so offensive and 
"socially immoral". I find that 
attitude so utterly fascist that it is 
hard to believe that she could use 
"The 'Liberal' Approach" in mock, 
and try to replace the variety with 
her own "serious" and one-sided 
views of how to educate women — 
again, by allowing them no means 
to make a choice for themselves! 
As Mark Twain said. "It's a 
difference of opinion that makes a 
horse race", and that goes for 
newspapers, and I'm afraid, Ms. 
Allen, the future too.

July 4 thanks 

To the Editor: 

This is to publicly thank the organizers of the July 4th Philadelphia 
rally. The July 4th Coalition really came through with a well planned 
and highly organized event that will remain in my mind for a long 
time to come. 

The demonstration itself was an orderly and peaceful event that 
publicized issues untouched by other Independence Day rallies. Full 
employment, equality for all and a bicentennial without colonies 
were among the issues central to the demonstration. Over 60,000 
people from around the country came together to express solidarity 
with the various People's struggles going on nationally and inter- 
nationally. Somebody in Philadelphia said the rally drew more people 
than Gerry Ford did that same morning on the other side of town! 

The Western Massachusetts contingents were there in force. 450 
people in 10 buses took the long trek to Philly to register dissatis- 
faction with the status quo. The Western Mass. July 4th Coalition 
obviously put a lot of time and effort in ensuring the safety and well- 
being of those venturing down there. Security was effective, medics 
were well prepared and parade marshalls kept contingents in order. 

My thanks to the July 4th Coaltion for making such a meaningful 
Bicentennial available to the people of Western Massachusetts.

Reorg poses threat 

Listener responds 

to 'Off the Hook ' show 

To the Editor 

On the June 17 "Off the Hook" 
show on WMUA, the topic was 
media coverage on the UMass 

One listener called in asking Joe 
Mahoney, executive editor of the 
Collegian why the Collegian is 
so racist and whether the individual 
or the institution as a whole was 

In answer to his question, I 
believe the individual reporter is 
mainly interested in covering an 
assigned story to the best of his 
ability with speed, accuracy, and 
objectiveness. The personal in- 
terests of the individual may create 
bias, but bias occurs in all news. 
The object is to report an event 
factually and reporters strive to 
meet this objective. 

As an institution, the Collegian 
follows a formal style of reporting 
similar to many of the larger 
newspapers. Its style may not meet 
the needs of all its readers, but its 
intent is to give students the formal 
training they will need outside the 
University, and relay essential 
information which concerns all 

A Second listener called "Off the 
Hook" and asked what ic being 
done to c6ver women's affairs and 
combat sexist attitudes. Mahoney 
responded by citing the addition of 
the women's pages. The listener 
asked how particular reporter's 
views of women's affairs can be 

representative of all women on 

I believe the two questions have 
a direct relation. 

If the Collegian begins to devote 
its pages to satisfying the needs of 
every group on campus it will never 
totally represent the group and will 
not adequately be able to report 
news events on campus and in the 

The Collegian will become a 28-

Such a paper would not meet the

We all have different roles in 
different situations, but we're all 
"students" at the University. 

The Collegian is a "student" 
newspaper. "Students" and issues 
concerning "students" are its main 
focus, and any "student" can write 
for the paper. 

If ANY group considers the 
Collegian racist, then EVERY group 
would have to consider it racist. 

They probably do. But, if the 
paper is treating each group in a 
similar manner, at least ALL 
students are being given equal 

June Greig 

To the Editor 

There is a threat to the economy 
of Western Massachusetts in the 
proposed educational 
reorganization of Massachusetts 
public higher education. Un- 
fortunately, educational 
reorganization is receiving only 
brief mention in the news media, so 
we are trying to alert people to the 

Centralization of administrative 
functions for the University of 
Massachusetts state and com- 
munity colleges willjnevitably mean 
shifting state jobs from each in- 
stitution to central offices which 
will be in Boston. Many University 
functions are being transferred to 
direct control of the f^esident's 
office — which may eventually 
result in transfers of personnel to 
Boston. A likely candidate for 
example would be the Ad- 
ministrative Data Processing Dept. 
and Management Systems which 
are already under the President's 
direct control, those personnel are 
fairly high paid and therefore their 
transfers would have a substantial 
adverse impact on the local 
housing, and retail markets, as 
those jobs were shifted to Boston. 

The shifting of Amherst campus 
funds and jobs that former UMass 
Chancellor Oswald Tippo warned of 
when the centralized UMass 
President's office was created, has 
continued over the years. This shift 
would accelerate and involve all 
state colleges in the western region 

if all state higher education facilities 
were run from a centralized Boston 
super administration. The 
University, especially, is one of the 
largest employers in the region, and 
reductions in personnel would be 
harmful to the economy, especially, 
if combined with other education 
institution 's reductions. 

We have taken a stand against 
centralization because we see it 
increasing the levels of ad- 
ministration — thereby increasing 
costs, increasing administrative 
powers — which become self- 
serving rather than public serving, 
and decreasing responsiveness to 
the public - and local needs. The 
legislation is being considered this 
month, so people concerned with 
the valley economy should talk with 
their legislators soon about the 
likely effects on our region of 
educational reorganization.

Very few from the Amherst area 
were in attendance, and despite a 
lavish publicity campaign by the 
Peoples Bicentennial Commission 
if'BC), only one bus-full of 
alternative observers" disem- 
barked from the Boston area on 
Saturday night. 

The first official observance of 
the holiday began at 4:33 a.m 
(EDT) on Mars Hill Mountain"

puters, daylight initially touches the 
United States. Dawn arrived in 
Washington a few hours later and

which this country was founded.

Variety of Speakers 

The rally served as an ooen 

orum ,,, 3 ,.^^^^^ numbe^of 

peakers and their causes. Among 

them were Ed Sadlowski, president 

of the largest steel district union in 

the country, Philip Foner, historian 
and author of VVer/,eOr/;e.pC/e 

of ?h«^ rfw'^c""^^' ^'^«-President 
of the United Farm Workers. They 
spoke on labor and government 
elations, as did Sid Lens, historian 
and labor organizer, who said "We 
dedicate ourselves to overthrow 
ths government! We dedicate 
oureelves today for that revolution 
and for ever!" 

Actress Jane Fonda, who helped 
moderate the last half of the rally 
resurrected '60's sentiments by 
bringing back to memory the not 

so-distant Vietnam era, Watergate 
and post-Watergate, political 
corruption and assassination 
while calling for th^atolition of he 
Central Intelligence Agency. 

By far, the most powerful 
delivery came from author 
Jonathon K020I Death at an Early 
Age. A resident of Boston, his 

slir;«HTH °' "^^^"""^ «^"<^tion 
stirred the crowd at several points 
dunng his discourse 

Oval Office, and Mr. Peanuts out 
back in the garagel" he began 
The trouble with the public 
schools in the United States today 
IS not that they don't work well - 
the trouble is that they do! It is n^ 
accident that the public schools 
have turned out John Mitchell i is 

no accident that the public sch(ols 
have turned out Richard NixonI Ti e 
goal of public education in this 
country is not to produce good 
people; it's to produce good 
soldiers! And it does!" 

„ .^.^n "f.^'°"8'" he exclaimed, 
skillfully divided 'by our_parents 

and their real estate brokers!" Ha 
attacked the Pledge of Allegiance 
and concluded by shouting- "We'M 
make a deal with the school boards- 
We II recite that goddamn pledge 
when you prove it's one nation 
indivisible!" ' 

One of the closing speakers tor 

the rally was Ellen Gavin, who billed 
herself as "President, Student 
Government, University of Massa 
chusetts, Amherst." Like Kozol she 
called for a return to student ac- 
tivism on and off campus. 

"I came to the college of your 
choice," she stated, "and by tha 
time you really believe it is your 
choice. But I came to a campus full 
of male, pubescents trying to lose 
meir virginity to anyone who'd take 

Gavin stated that the new 
hberalism of universities is another 
device to oppress activism. "Thev 
let us have all the dope and sex we 

need to keep us low key!" she said 
A college degree guarantees that 
we can hold an intelligent con- 
versation while standing in the 
unemployment line!" 

Gavin closed by calling for a 
breakdovvn of the white-male 
control of government, business 
and social life, and placing it into 
the harids of responsible women 
and children.

Four hundred persons from the

an estimated 60,000 others from 
coalitions ranging from as far west 
as South Dakota to as far south as

clapping and chanting with the 

"I think it's wonderful," replied 

one woman when asked her 

opinion of the march. 
An elderly man joined the march 

tor about a quarter of a mile and 

chanted, "the People united will 

never be defeated." 
The Western Mass contingent 

was delayed for two hours due to 
the long line of other contingents 
Television and newspaper crews 
underestimated the size of the 
crowd at 25,000 when they were 
not alerted of the delay. 

But according to Dave Delinger 
noted anti-war activist, more 
people attended the coalition rally 
than President Ford's speech held 
on Independence Plaza earlier in 
the day. 

Police lined the streets along the 
route and were equipped with riot 
helmets and billy clubs, prepared to 
put down the violence 
Philadelphia's Mayor Frank Rizzo 
had expected. 

"I hope and pray nothing occurs 
but - I know this - a lot of people 
are coming to this town who are 
bent on violence ... we won't need 
troops if there's violence. We'll put 
It down," Rizzo was quoted as 
saying in the Philadelphia Inquirer 
on the day of the march. 

Rizzo had requested 15,000 
federal troops, but the request was 
denied by Washington. 

Demonstrators were instructed 
to wear long pants and long sleeve 
shirts and no sandals, both for 
protection from the sun and for 
defensive purposes in case of 

The violence Rizzo and the media 
expected never occurred, however, 
and according to one member of 
the New York contingent, no 
arrests were made. 

On entering Fairmount Park at 
the end of the march, the con- 
tingents were ushered to 
designated spaces surrounding a 
temporary stage. 

Among the many well-known 
speakers was Dr. Bernard Lee of 
the National Christian Leadership 
Conference, who received a minute 

long standing ovation when he 
called for revolution 'rignt now 
against our aggressors." He said of 
the rally, 'T/7/5 is the revolutionary 
spirit," and he said the only 
deterrent to revolution is people's 
fear. "This minute," he said "has 
only sixty seconds in it. The only 
thing to overcome is fear." 

Reverend P.H. Docking Jr. of the 
Worcester contingent summed up 

•■•is reason for attending the rally, 

saying "as a minister, it is my 

responsibility to serve the people If 

*^r)e person is enslaved, all people 

are enslaved. I am m complete 

solidarity with demonstrators both

Record reviews 


By Dave Santos 

JEFF BECK: Wrec/( Epic)- Now 
that "gee-it'8-great-to-have-Beck- 
back-agatn- has worn off, it's time 
to see what the original axe 
murderer is really up to. For all his 
old fans, Beck's new direction is 
almost death itself. My hats off to 
one M.C. Kostek for correctly Becky a new name 
Beckavishnu. Wired is a con- 
tinuation of the B/ow by Bhvs, 
scheme of things, only that it is a 
vast improvement over Blow By 
Blow because Beck is playing 
raunchy again - even if it is jazz 
funk-rock or whatever. "Come 
Dancin" and "Led Boots" are 
bruisers in their own right. Beck's 
sidemen are three times better than 
before [Blow By Blow that is)- ex- 
Mahavishnu's Jan Hammer and 
Michael Walden, the ever-present 
Max Middleton and Walter

Sugarloaf Mt. track club 
continues meet series 

The second of the Sugarloaf 
Mountain Ahletic Club summer 
track meets V /as held last Thursday 
at the UMass track. 

The outstarHJing performance of 
the meet was turned in by UMass 
assistant track coach Gary King, 
who won the long jump (21'10"), 
the high jump (6-0), and the 120^ 
yard hurdles in 16.0 seconds. King 
also placed fourth in the 100-yard 
dash in 10.6 seconds. King's long 
jump and high jump were both 
meet records, breaking standards 
that had stood since 1974. 

In other events, UMass miler and 
cross country runner John Scheer 
won both the mile (4:23.7), and the 
880 (2:04.0). Last week's mile 
winner, Al Smith, was second in 

Charlotte Lettis, just back from

There is no excuse now to ignore 

this band any longer. With the 
exception of Turn Of The Cards 
Uve At Carnigie Hall is the ultimate 
Renaissance album to own Two 
records worth of classical- rock 
done right for a change! I Ad- 
mittedly the two side long cuts drag 
•n spots, but all the short cuts 
(averaging 9-11 minutes) are 
breath-taking. "Ocean Gypsy" and 
"Mother Russia" are art-rock 
personified. As a band 
Renaissance has never been so 
together. Vocalist Annie Haslam 
possesses one of the finesi voices 
around, rivaled only by Joni Mit-

look at Robin Crest Stables 


If you happen to pass the Robin 
Crest Stables while driving along 
Turners Falls Road in Montague 
you will recognize it by the large 
number of horses and foal roaming 
freely about its corals. 

Most of the 80 horses on the 55- 
acre farm are Appaloosas, the 







oldest horses in racorded history 
and recognizable by their spotted 
coloring. They are often called 
"raindrop" due to their spots. 

If you decide to take a closer look 
at the horses or go for a trail ride 
along the 20-30 mi. of available 
paths, you may notice black and 
white stripes on their hoofs or 
discover the fact that Appaloosas 
are the only horse with white- 
nmmed eyes, similar to the human 

Co-owners John and Elisabeth 
Hobbs and Robert and Rose Anne 
Dods joined forces last fall and 
expanded the horse stable with the 
purchase of 28 Appaloosas in 
Oklahoma, lA the largest horse sale 
of ApDa!oo&c(. in the country. The 
stable became the site of "Star Bar 
Breeders, Inc.". 

"The main interest of the stable " 
said Elisabeth Hobbs, "is promotirig 
and creating a top Appaloosa 
string, and offering the best riding 

The Appaloosas early existence 
has been established by etchings 
found in prehistoric caves across 
the continent before the time of 

Appallosas were the horse of 
royalty in France and Spain in the 
17th cer.tury, and were brought to 
North America by Spanish ad- 

The Nez Perce Indians of Idaho 
and Washington bred the horses in 
ihe Palouse River region because 
ihey were strong, sturdy, and calm 
The name Appaloosa comes from 
!hc -word Palouse.

Rose Anne Dobs, manager of the 
stable, said, "horses are like cats 
Some of them don't want to be 
louched and others love to be 
babied." Her prize stallion, "Money 
Creek Siri Rock" (Rocky) em- 
phasized the statement by 
resDonding to her request for a kiss. 
About two years ago, Robin 
Crest Stable took over the site of 
"Dew Crest Stable", locally known 
as Bernardo's. The five-year old 
stable was a part of "Dew Crest 
Acres", a dairy farm owned by 
Rose Anne Dob's father, Anthony 
J. Bernardo for 35 years. 

The. Hobbs' family often rode at 
Ihe stable in the spring of 1975 and 
decided to merge with the Dobs' to 
buy and sell young foals and breed 
'he finest Appaloosa horses for 
riding, show and speed, with the 
hopes of racing them in the future. 
Quarter horses and thorough- 
breds, known f^ their racing 
speed, are also being bred with the 

"The race tracks in the area are 
not interested in Appaloosa racing - 
at this time," said Dobs, "but we 
are anticipating a change in the 

The stable consists of one barn 
with 12 stalls and storage area for 
hay, two new shelters with 18 
additional stalls, three outside 
shelters, a paddock area for sad- 
dling, one light riding ring, one 
dressage ring for practicing 
specialized riding, six large fenced 
pastures and open fields and woods

When burned 
stay cool 

As some of the Puffer's Pond 
crowd may know by experience, 
long range effects of excess ex- 
posure to the sun can be harmful. 

Ultra-violet rays break down the 
protein in skin and promote 
thickening and wrinkling, according 
to a University Health Services 
guide, "Sur." Excess exposure to 
the sun's rays can also cause skin 
cancer and risk is high in sunny 
regions of the world, among fair 
skinned people and people working 
outside, according to the guide. 

Exposure to the sun can lead to 
problems but there are preventive 
measures which can be followed to 
minimize them, including gradual 
exposure, sun screen and 

The guide states that in case of a 
bad sunburn, the important thing to 
remember in treatment is to keep 
the burn cool. Even before the burn 
"comes out," soak in a cool bath or 
use compresses. Lotions or creams 
may trap heat in the skin according 
to the guide and do more harm that 
good until after the skin is cooled. If 
blisters occar, fhe guide suggests 
protecting them from opening for 
several days and not covering with 
a dressing. If needed, aspirin can be 
taken to relieve pain.

Quabbin diversion plan spurs concern 

By cm Skibinsky 

BELCHERTOWN - A review of 
current scientific research relating 
to the preparation of an en- 
vironmental impact report on the 
proposed diversion of millions of 
gallons of Connecticut River water 
from Northeast Utilities' Northfield 
pump storage electric power 
generating facility into the Quabbin 
Reservoir was the focus of a 
citizens' meeting Friday sponsored 
by the Institute for Man and His 
'Environment at UMass. 

An audience of about 40 area 
residents, researchers, and em- 
ployes of the Metropolitan District 
Commission (MDC) which oversees 
Boston's water supply, filled the 
Quabbin Administration Building in 
Belchertown to hear three 
professors from the University, and 
a team of researchers from New 
England Research, Inc., all hired by 
the MDC, present their findings on 
various environmental aspects of 
the diversion plan, scheduled for 
completion in the late 1980's. 

The diversion plan envisions a 
ten mile underground aqueduct 
from Northfield to Quabbin, ac- 
cording to UMass Professor of 
Water Resources Edward Kaynor, 

The MDC would pay Northeast 
Utilities to pump water from the 
Connecticut River into the pump 
storage facility, 1005 feet above sea 
level. Gravity would then pull the 
water from the facility into Quabbin 
at 524 feet above sea level, he said. 

During 70 days in early spring, 
375 million gallons of water per day 
will be released into the Quabbin. 
The aqueduct will remain unused 
throughout the remainder of the 
year, said Kaynor. 

At the meeting. Geology 
Professor Oswald C. Farquhar 
presented a report on the disposal 
of waste material produced by the 
drilling of the aqueduct from the 
pump storage facility in Northfield 
to tfie Quabbin reservoir, which lies 
to the southeast. 

He projected few "engineering 
problems", and said the waste 
•material could either be sold as fill 

Student jobs provide input 

or "manicured" to blend with the 
natural environment. 

The material will be, removed 
from the aqueduct through three 
deep vertical shafts drilled into the 
earth along the route of the 
aqueduct, said Farquhar. 

The impact of these proposed 
drilling sites on the nearby surface 
vegetation and wildlife was the 
subject of Forest and Wildlife 
Management Professor Carl A. 
Carlozzi's report. 

Carlozzi anticipated few 
problems at the majority of the sites 
as most of them had been disturbed 
by man in the past and would not 
suffer adverse effects from the 

However, Carlozzi said that 
drilling in the wetland area of a 
proposed site in the town of 
Wendell would cause a 
"measurable loss" to the habitat of 
the endangered Great Blue Heron. 
He added that this is one of the few 
areas in Massachusetts where the 
birds breed. 

Carlozzi also cited a possibility

Seven students have been hired 
by the administration to provide 
student input into the current re- 
organization of Student Affairs. 
The students will work throughout 
the summer gathering information, 
meeting with faculty, staff and 
administration, and will issue 
reports on their investigations to 
the general public at the start of 
school this fall. 

The jobs grew out of meetings at 
the end of the Spring semester with 
the Vice-Chancellor, Robert Gage, 
and the Student Presidents, Paul 
Cronin and Jay Martus. 

Gage felt the need to have 
students involved in the process of 
Student Affairs re-organization, 
which will have an impact on the 
campus of separation of 
programatic and management 
"^functions. This re-organization 
complies with the orders of 
President Wood to hire a new Vice- 
Chancellor of Administration and 
Finance to control the budget of 
the university. Thus the campus 
must gear itself for the split in the 
functions of management and 
programs which are currently 
combined in most areas of the 

In order to keep communication 
lines open and to develop problem 
solving areas, The Student Affairs 
Program Council has come 
together to work together. Made up 

of Faculty, Staff and Ad- 
ministration, the council should 
serve students' needs as they 
encounter daily living, develop a 
system which facilitates and 
maximizes student educational 
experience through complementary 
education, counseling and advising, 
and student development. The 
Council meets on Tuesday at nine 
a.m. in the Campus Center. 

The seven students hired have 
developed into three task groups to 
begin working on the complexity of 
oroviding input into the many 
different areas the re-organization 
will affect. 

One task group will be the Task 
Force on Student Involvement. The 
goal is to design a structure and 
process by which effective student 
input into the decision making 
processes of the Students Affairs 
and the Office of Administration 
and Finance will be insured. 

They will examine current 
student boards of governors, 
committees and other models of 
student input and examine why 
they do or do not work. By in- 
vestigation, they hope to initiate 
new channels of involvement, 
which will come out as proposals to 
the administration, student 
government and the general 

The other two task groups are 
looking into the Community 
Development Center and 

Residence Hall Resource 
management re-organization, and 
the development of a Public In- 
formation Center. 

The former will try to define the 
needs of off campus, non- 
traditional and married students. 
They will also develop a search and 
selection process for an Off 
Campus Area Director and 
determine the needs of the 
director's support staff. 

The roles and work relationships 
among and between area staff, 
such as Head of Residents, 
counselors. Area directors and 
resource management will be 

Resource manager is a new 
position created to oversee the 
management of the areas and to 
hopefully decrease the damage in 
the areas by one half. The current 
bill for damage runs about 100,000 
dollars a year. 

The development of a public 
information center was begun in 
the anticipation of the reshuffling of 
people and offices during the 

The Center will provide 
assistance in all areas including 
Health Care, Academic survival,

other basic needs.

Affairs office, room 403 Student 
Union, adjacent to the Collegian 

that construction of an aqueduct 
outlet in the northernmost portion 
of the Quabbin could disturb the 
habitat of the Bald Eagle. However, 
he termed the threat to the eagle 
"highly problematical". 

Environmental Science Professor 
Robert A. Coler spoke on 
eliminating the threat which warm- 
water fish species such as catfish, 
suckers, and carp pose to Quab- 
bin's cold-water salmon and trout 

Coler discribed two ways of 
destroying fish eggs and Ian/a in 
water pumped into the Quabbin - 
injecting the water with either 
chlorine or ozone. Coler said he 
favored the use of ozone over 
chlorine because of its tendency to 
break down much more rapidly 
than chlorine without leaving a 

Coler said that toxicity studies 
had not been completed on certain 
species representing a threat — 
particularly carp and lamprey eels. 
A final report was offered by Dr. 
George Camougis and Paul A. 
Erickson of New England Research, 
Inc., a private consulting firm, on 
the effect of Connecticut River 
water on the water quality of the 
Quabbin. They cited a study on the 
effects of fluctuations in the 
amount of rainfall into the reservoir 
to show that Qut|jjbin water quality 
remained stable under a variety of 
environmental conditions. 

They then claimed that there 
would be "no measurable increase" 
in the amount of water quality 
degrading nutrients in the Quabbin 
if the Connecticut River was 
diverted. They cited two 
generations of field and laboratory 
studies to support the contention 
that the natural purification process 
occurring both in the Northfield 
pump storage facility and the 
Quabbin would maintain the water 
at its present high quality. 

The Northfield diversion plan was 
developed in 1964 by Western 
Mass. Electric Company (WEMCQ, 
now Northeast Utilities), under 
federal regulations calling for 
multiple uses of pump storage 
facilities, according to Professor 

WEMCQ approached the MDC in 
1965 at the height of a severe 
drought which had reduced 
Quabbin's water level to 45 per 
cent. At the time there existed no 
environmental movement to speak 
of, said Kaynor, and the state 
legislature "unanimously" 
authorized $25 million for the 

The MDC, however, spent the 
money on other projects, and, in 
1969, when it requested additional 

funds for the diversion, "well 
organized" environmental forces, 
including the Coalition for En- 
vironmental Quality at UMass 
attacked the project on various 
grounds, including fears that 
radioactive isotopes would enter 
Boston's water supply through the 
Connecticut from the nuclear 
generating plant in Vernon, Ver- 

Investigatois from the Atomic 
Energy Commission rejected this 
claim, but "the state legislature 
slowed everything down and the 
bill got stalled," said Kaynor. 

Finally, in 1970, the legislature 
authorized another $20 million. In 
the meantime, both the National 
Environmental Policy Act and the 
Mass. Environmental Impact 
- Reports, said Kaynor. 

In 1973 the MDC hired the In- 
stitute for M-in and His En- 
vironment to do a study of the 
impact of the diversion. As a result 
of the Institute's report, the MDC 
hired the researchers who 
presented reports at Friday's 
meeting to do further study of 
various environmental aspects of 
the diversion, said Kaynor. 

Since the mid-sixties drought, 
the Quabbin has refilled completely, 
and, in fact, more water than usual 
has had to be released into the 
Swift River from the Quabbin to 
keep the reservoir's water level 

Kaynor said he felt that the 
project may be continuing because 
of the momentum it has built up 
over the years. He added that 48 
per cent of the water travelling to 
Boston from Quabbin is "unac- 
counted for". He cited en- 
vironmentalists' claims that if the 
system were improved there would 
be no need for the diversion. 

He also expressed doubt over the 
favorable reports of Friday's 
meeting, and said he was not sure 
there would be no degradation of 
water quality. 

Although the meeting was in- 
tended to be a discussion of the 
results of the researchers' reports, 
State Representative Robert 
Wetmore (D-Barry) expressed his 
fear that the western part of the 
state was being exploited by the 

He said he feared that water will 
be diverted to Quabbin throughout 
the year during times of drought, 
and that Western Mass. may 
eventually be left with a "dry 

Madge Ertel, associate director of 
the Institute for Man and His En- 
vironment said a scientific sym- 
posium will be held in" the fall to 
further discuss the implications of 
the Northfield diversion plan.

speak for students

Even though most Beacon Hill 
legislators consider Senate 
President Kevin Harrington's (D- 
Salem) attempt to reorganize 
Massachusetts Public Higher 
education a "dead issue" for now, 
UMass Student Senate State 
House liaison workers continue to 
speak for students' interests while a 
special commission studies the 
"reorg" bill. 

UMass-Amherst State House 
liaison workers Pat Baker, Henry 
Ragin, and Bill Biuestein agree that 
Harrington's reorg bill, S1371, is a 
bad deal for students. The liaison 
workers have submitted amend- 
ments to the reorg legislation which 
provides for student representation 
on the governing boards which 
administer public higher education 
in this state. 

Baker said that Harrington's 
original bill would have given one 
'superboard " the power to run the 
state's thirty public college cam- 
puses. The original bill included no 
students on the superboard. 

Baker said that so many persons 
inside and outside government and 
the academic community found the 
reorg legislation unacceptable that 
a special commission has been set 
up to study the bill. That study 
group will report on the legislation 
in December 1976. An amended 
reorg bill will be re-introduced 
sometime next April to the 1977 
General Court. 

The liaison staff is attempting tc 
place students on that study 
commission. A token number of 
students on the commission would 
not be able to significantly affect 
votes of the study group, but would 
at least be kept informed of all 
meetings and decisions concerning 
the reorg legislation. Student 
representation on the study 
commission, and on the proposed 
superboard, according to Baker, 
will keep students up to date in 
decisions which affect their 
education at any of the state 
universities, ' colleges, and com- 
munity colleges.

Is marriage a mockery? 

Wednesday, July U, 1976 


So often I meet people who tell me that we "have it 
made" with the student life. They say we are free to 
come and go, to experience the differences of life and 
to live as we please without the burdens of the "real 
world". Frequently they leave one puzzled and 
perhaps a touch guilty or something, because the 
student life does not always seem so wonderful as we 
are told. 

It might be nice if life for the student made sense all 
the time and that we all knew our place, but the fact 
of the matter is that the sensitive student often faces 
confusion and a good deal of isolation. People come 
and go, one semester ends and another begins, and 
change is often profound, unpredictable and not 
easily adapted to. Life can be fragmented by the rapid 
pace at which friends move on and ideas and feelings 

During the semester students can insulate them- 
selves from much frustration by getting involved with 
new friends, new activities, and lots of studying. 
Sooner or later, things change, and the student 
HDoves away for the summer, leaving behind one way 
of life and moving into another. Some stay on to work 
and take a course, but the whole character of life is 
changed. Somehow it is difficult to avoid becoming 
an emotional as well as a physical nomad as life swirls 
around. One wonders what it is all about and where 
we are all going. 

Along the road to reality 

I have met and loved many people in my time at this 
University. I am glad to have known them and often 
miss them very much. The real focus of our presence 
here forces us off on different paths, as we struggle to 
get where we want to go, and often it can seem like 
nowhere at all. 

The really tagic thing about our "unreal" way of 
life IS that most all of us experience this isolation and 
bear the weight of the changes, often living right next 
door to each other. Yet, we never meet, never share 
and always keep moving on. We get our degrees our 
careers, even our houses and families, but never do 
we lose the sense of isolation. Maybe we ought to 
reconsider where we are headed. Perhaps we could 
use more of our energies getting to know ourselves 
and our neighbors better. 

If we do not start now, life will never be very much 
different when we have reached the goals of our 
college education". It is more important how we get 
to where we are going than simply y^here we want to 
go. It IS important not to lose sight of the precious 
lives we are spending on our goals. There is 
something extremely valuable to be learned from our 
transient way of life. We can come to appreciate the 
place of relatedness, sharing, and the importance of 
having loving human beings in our lives along the 
way. » ■■o

Many couples anticipating 
marriage today are considering a 
formal marriage contract as the 
basis for the relationship. 

The mere idea of a marriage 
contract doesn't appeal to me at all 
because it forces one to consider 
marriage on a business level and in 
effect takes love out of the 
marriage, replacing desire with 

In some legal marriage contracts, 
'he prospective husband and wife 
may allot the performance of some 
duties specifically to one of them, 
and they might even specify some 
penalty for non-performance. I 
think this idea is basically unsound 
and can be damaging to the 
relationship, because it requires 
certain functions to be done by one 
or the other of them. 

Jealousy and animosity may 
result from an unwillingness to 
perform assigned tasks. The work 
in a household should be done 
voluntarily, with a desire to keep 
the household running smoothly, 
not from some high flown sense of 
duty to a meaningless piece of 

Another tentative provision in 
marriage contracts is a section 
dealing with maternity and 
housework. Under this statute a 
wife would be given a portion of her 
husband's salary for cooking, 
cleaning, and raising their children! 
A wife rightly deserves some 
compensation for running their 
house, but her desire to take a 
portion of his salary can be 

Letter to the editor 

The 'success story' that left UMass 

To the Editor "— 

By stipulating her desire on paper 
she is in effect destroying one of 
the principle ideas of marriage 
namely the sharing in common of 
any money and financial resources 
the two may have. In a good 
marriage the two partners share 
everything equally and by choice 
not because the rule in a contract 
requires them to. 

I think that any couple that feels 
the need to spell out in a contract 
things that should be no real 
problem has no business getting 
married. A need to spell things out 
like that shows latent insecurity and 
the fear that the other spouse will 
run away, with no notice given. 
Any marriage founded on this kind 
of an idea is anything but stable and 
should be carefully watched. 

Many contracts also include a 
divorce clause. The mere existence 
of such a clause indicates to me 
that many are entering marriage 
with the idea of leaving it sometime 
later on. A divorce clause removes 
the permanency of the marital 
state. A husband or wife sub- 
consciously doesn't give his or her 
"all" and doesn't work as hard to 
please. If one spouse doesn't 
approve of certain actions, the 
remaining partner has the legal 
right to leave, or to have the 
marriage annulled for breach of 

Putting marriage on the level of a 
purely business arrangement 
destroys the idea of love as the 
driving force. Love can't possibly 
survive long in the tense and 
strained atmosphere of a Con- 
tractual Marriage.

Ebdle possible nominee 

By Joe Mahoney 

NEW YORK - Fritz Efaw, a 29-year-old draft resistor, exiled from the 
United States for seven years may soon find himself nominated for vice 

After a lengthy strategy session of the National Amnesty Council (NAC) 
a group that works for universal and unconditional amnesty for war 
resisters and military deserters - a concrete plan has been produced that 
insures raising the amnesty issue before a nationwide television audience 

ArHJ that's where Fritz Efaw comes in. 

Efaw is among the first group of Americans living abroad to become a 
delegate at a political convention. He is also the first American war resister 
to become a delegate. 

' According to an organizer for NAC, Dee Knight, Efaw's name will be 
placwl in nomination before tomorrow night. That way, Knight pointed 
out, Efaw Will be able to tell a convention and a nationwide audience that 
the time for amnesty is overdue. 

Jimmy Carter's a breath away from becoming the democratic 
presidential nominees prefers a "pardon" rather than a general amnesty 
But NAC IS applying pressure and predicts Carter will have to change his 
stand. They feel Carter will continue to label his program as a "pardon" 
however, since the ex-Georgia governor feels calling for amnesty openly 
would hurt him in the ballot box in November. 

"Pardon implies guilt". Knight said. "But we are less interested in the 
name than helping those in need of a non-punitive amnesty." 

Efaw feels a strong solidarity with those not covered by Carter's present 
restrictive clemency," Knight said. 

Interviewed yesterday Efaw said Carter did not understand economic 
conscnption. "During the war middle class youth could afford college and 
medical deferments, while working class youths were systematically 
channeled into the military," Efaw stated. 

But there is one problem. Efaw is six years shy of the required age to 
become a vice president.

Letter to the editor 

Missed the point 




To the Editor 

Boxanne Schneider ("It's 
Opinion That Makes A Horse 
Race", July 7, 19761 appears to 
have completely missed Charlotte 
Allen's point ("The Liberal Ap- 
proach", June 30. 1976} when the 
latter criticized Joyce Davidson's 
engagement at the Toward 
Tomorrow Fair. I would like to point 
out that in her criticism Ms. AJIen 
was neither fascist nor confused. 
Quite clearly, the "Total Woman" is 
a totally oppressive ideology. 
Obviously, the Fair invited no out- 
spoken racists to elaborate on their 
viewpoints. Why then such a 
blatant sexist? In this case, the right 
to freedom of speech has been 
manipulated into a justification for 
the continuance of an oppressive 
organization. Does Ms. Schneider 
mean to suggest that every op- 
pressive group is Justified by 
"right" to perpetuate their tyranny? 
That Nazism and apartheid right- 
fully deserve a place in society? 

When a fair is organized on the 
basis of presenting alternatives for 
the future, yet turns around and 
offers this enormous step back- 
wards, criticism is due. There is a 
clear difference between fascism 

and an attempt to eliminate op- 
pression. Surely, we should take 

advantage of every available op- 
portunity to eliminate the per- 
petuation of our forefather's 
prejudice, greed, and ignorance. 
One manner of doing this would be 
to refuse to financially "reward" 
people like Joyce Davidson and the 
repressive ideology she represents. 
Only then can we hope to look 
"toward tomorrow."

Max Roach 

at WMUA 

Master percussionist Max Roach 
was honored here over radio station 
W.M.U.A. in a two day celebration 
saluting the musical giant. Part one 
"progressively Black" with Kwaku 
Wed. 12 noon-4 p.m. The program 
got under way with Roach's early 
recordings, those with Charlie 
Parker, Jay McShane and others 
thru the mid 60's when he recorded 
with the Impluse label. Students as 
well as faculty responded with 

UMass security head "The 
strong man" dropped in personally 
to express warm wishes in a written 
statement to the man he feels is a 
legendary giant among us. 

Part 2 with bro. Malik and guest 
started promptly with a visit by Max 
Roach himself exfj»aining how it al! 
started. "After my mother's 
rejection of the trumpet, I switched 
to percussion, back, then a half 
hour lession was only a quarter. * 
Also discussed was some of the 
major changes the musician as well 
as the music has gone thru. 
"Young musicians must learn to be 
themselves and develop a style of 
their own". Also the fact how you 
must start to analyze what is more 
important, looking like a spaceman 
or perfecting your sound. 

Mr Roach will be leaving UMass 
shortly with much to his credit. His 
constant input to the struggle as 
well as the music makes him a true 
7>an of deeds not words.

Summer concert scene 


^hen the British visited Schaefer Stadium 

By Craig Roche 

Bicentennial fever took hold in 
early July and the Stumbling 
Thunder Review hit the road for an 
exhausting concert tour of New 
England. I greeted the rising sun on 
the Fourth of July with squinting 
eyes and took the redeye express to 
Foxboro. Elton John, Dave Mason 
and John Miles, all Englishmen, 
were to perform for 75,000 at 
Schaefer Stadium. At $10.50 a 
ticket that meant a gross of around 
$800,000 for the day. I'm not at all 
sure that we won the revolution 
after all. 

The huge stage, covering the end 
zone at the north end out to the 
thirty-yard line, was emblazoned 
with the Tour '76 motto of "Louder 
than Concorde, but not quite as 

It was decorated to look like a 
huge juke box, which would please 
Dr. Dee Greeze. Framing the stage 
at both sides were pairs of 
American and British flags each as 
large as Cadillac. At the top of the 
twin light towers a dozen smaller 
flags flickered in the afternoon 
breeze as Dave Mason ran through 
a long and pleasant soundcheck. 

The concert, scheduled to begin 
at 7 p.m. started two hours early to 
alr.ow a longer show for Elton. The 
first arrivals had gotten to the 
asphalt accommodations Saturday 
afternoon, a full 24 hours in ad- 
vance of admission. Most of the 
crowd continued to flow into the 
stadium all afternoon, filling the 
field first and the stadium seats last. 
The turf at Schaeffer is plastic, 
Astroturf, and little more com- 
fortable than concrete. It is also 
h®t|K!»t^ ^J!»-as the \«^ people to be 
admitted quickly learned, half of the 
day's struggle would be to avoid 
being blistered from hot sun above 
and hotter ground cover below. 

John Miles opened a short set at 
six o'clock. Miles, an artist whose 
first album has just been released in 
America, was diffidently received 
by the audience of EJ's fans. The 
best part of his show was the air- 
craft flying above the stadium 
plugging his album. I watched at 
least three people destabilized by 
the wine, sun, and weed fall over 
when they tried to stand and see 
the plane. 

Dave Mason followed up with a 
pleasant set of music that he has 
been playing for the past five years. 
I am personally growing tired of his 
unvarying style and format, but he 
was better at getting his music 
across than Miles, and very 

Clearly the audience was eagerly 
awaiting Elton's act. The English- 
man himself had yet to arrive by 7 
p.m., as his band and touring party 
of around 100 dined on 350 lobsters 
being served backstage in the field- 

One maniac fan showed up 
backstage with an almost life size 
styrofoam replica of Elton, com- 
plete with platform shoes, slick 
glitter suit and spectacles properly 
setting him off. This proved to be a 
pleasant diversion as she and I 
strolled into the lobster feed and 
drew him out of a green trash bag, 
producing enough of a stir for them 
to bring us along into the real 
Elton's dressing room where the 
dummy was seated in a Bentwood 
rocker. I am tempted here to make 
cheap one-liners, but won't. The 
dummy deserves better. Un- 
fortunately we were swept out of 
the air conditioned room into the 94 
degree heat when Elton's helicopter 
flew onto the race way below the 
stadium. Four black Cadillacs 
dashed the .6 of a mile from track to 
Oackstage access, and it was just 
about 9 p.m. when he took the 
stage, suitably attired in the silver 
lame Statue of Liberty outfit he 
modeled for the w*«k's issue of 

Time. Leaping down from the 
piano, Elton threw the cape and 
crown off and uncovered a blue 
shirt with stars, and red and white 
striped satin pants. The crowd 

roared approval and the band lit 
into "Grow Some Funk on Your 
Own". From that point on, Elton 
and his band surged for two and a 
half hours, playing at least one song 
from each of his many albums. The 
Stumbling Thunder Review has 
already heard enough music this 
summer for my ears to bleed, but 
Elton's show was easily the best so 
far. Regardless of your overall 
feelings, at least one song by Elton 
and lyricist Bernie Taupin must 
have reached you, I'll wager, and he 
played them all that Sunday. The 
only omission I found surprising 
was that they didn't do "Daniel." 

The crowd, made up of a good 
many post-teenagers (a roun- 
dabout manner of saying young 
adults if there ever was one) 
greeted most tunes with quick 
recognition, applause, and, en- 
couraged by Elton, a lot of sing- 
along. Joining him for a surprise 
shot was the Queen of tennis, Ms. 
Billie Jean King, as a back-up 
vocalist for a rousing "Philadelphia 

Midway into the evening, long 
after the sun had set, a fireworks 
frame behind the stage was set 
ablaze and a 20-ft. high Elton John 
face in fireworks loomed at the 
crowd. Throughout the night in 
most the songs, the jukebox-like 
stage would have neon and in- 
candescent lights flashing. This 
was of course most effective for his 
second, maybe third, encore, 
"Pinball Wizard". The Wizard 
chose to close his show with a quiet 
and excellent rendition of "Your 
Song," which he said was 
"espeeially for you here, in 
Boston." He also hinted that this 
would be his final tour for a few 
years, which drew a short sob from 
the collective 13-year-old throats on 
the field. If this is his last tour for a 
while, it is a fitting capper to his 
prolific son-gwriting and touring

career. He left every person in the 
stadium satisfied and high after an 
amazing show. 

Two days later, back in this part 
of the state, the Review landed in 
Tanglewood for the Judy Collins 
and Leo Kottke show. One of the 
Popular Artists Summer Series, the 
performers that Tuesday riight 
played to a two-thirds full Shed and 
about 3,000 on the huge 
Tanglewood lawn. 

Kottke, on the tour as opening 
act, suffered a bit as his amazing 
guitar playing couldn't fill the great 
outdoors as it did the Academy of 
Music when he was in North- 
ampton this past spring. Still he 

came through to those who came 
fo listen, rather than hang out. In a 
30 minute set, he played "Pamela 
Brown," "Hear the Wind Howl,"' 
"Bouree," and five others. The 
pace of the show was 
mechanistically uninterrupted, 'zip', 
and the fresh faced young man was 

Judy Collins and her seven piece 
band then ran through a fairly 
uninspired set. Much like Mason's 
performance. Judy was playing a 
set of crowd pleasers that were 
applauded more for recognition and 
choice than the night's musical 
inspiration. At times it also seemed 
that her voice was straining for 
notes no longer within reach. She 

may have to learn, as Joni Mitchell 
did, to adapt a new vocal register to 
continue as an effective artist. 
Prime exarople of this was her 
singing to the 'pre-recorded ac- 
companiment of four taped voices. 
It wasn't bad at all, but lacking in 
vitality, something which makes 
concert going better than listening 
to albums. 

In searcri of that same vitality, 
the Stumblir.g Thunder sets out 
this week in the tour bus for ren- 
dezvous with Fleetwood Mac, the 
Jefferson Starship, J. Geils, Jethro 
Tull, Henry Gross, Arlo Guthrie, 
Pete Seeger, and the Band, whew. 
It's somewhere out there and we'll 
be on the road to find out.

Tenant files suit 
against Realtors 


Wednwday, July 14, }976 



By Laurie Wood 

The Amherst Tenants 
Association (ATA) met at the 
Amherst Town Hall Monday night 
as George B. Scheurer, a tenant 
from Colonial Village, presented a 
copy of a class actfon suit he is 
filing against Louis R. Cohn 
Associates, as represented by 
Kamins Real Estate to the Landlord

Tenants Relations Commission. 

In his suit, Scheurer is deman- 
ding that he and all members of the 
class action be awarded $1875 for 
damages suffered from the 75 
regulations he alleges have been 
violated in the lease presently used 
by Kamins, and which was ap- 
proved by the Pioneer Valley 
Housing Association, Inc. 

The violations are in conflict with 
the Massachusetts General Laws, 
and with regulations filed by the 
Attorney General's Office which are 
known as "The Landlord-Tenant 
Relationship Regulations and 
Amendments." Each person in- 
volved in the class action therefore, 
would receive $25 per violation. 

A second demand made by 
Scheurer is that a new model lease 
be used to replace the one which is 
presently employed by the Pioneer 
Valley Housing Association. Ac- 
cording to Scheurer, there are 
flagrant violations in the lease 

Finally, Scheurer and the ATA 
are demanding that an escrow 
account be set up in a bank to 
collect the security deposits which 
lessees have to lay down. The ATA 
would not have access to the 
principle, but only to the interest 
which would accrue upon the initial 
deposit. Presently, landlords collect 
the security deposits paid by 

The Landlord Tenants Relations 
Commission have a full agenda and 
could not consider the demands set 
forth by the ATA and Scheurer. A 
meeting has been scheduled for 
Monday evening, July 26, at the 
Town Hall.

Amherst College wins theatrical bidding war 

'Clif Skibinsky from Gemini Productions savina Amh-»» /--...— . ^ 

By cm Skibinsky 

UMass has been outbid by 
Amherst College in its attempt to 
bring the highly acclaimed play, 
"The Belle of Amherst" to this area 
in the fall. 

The University lost the contract 
for the play, which stars Julie Harris 
in a solo performance as the poet 
Emily Dickinson, as a result of "a 
matter of changed dates," ac- 
cording to Alan Light, manager of 
the Fine Arts Council. 

Light said the Council began 
negotiating in May with Gemini 
Productions of New York, which 
was acting as booking agent for the 
play. A contract for a three-day run 
September 8, 9 and 10 had been 
worked out, but before it could be 
signed, Harris had arranged to work 
on a movie during that month, he 

The Council began negotiating 
again for performances on 
Novembers, 9 and 10. On "June 17 
or 18" the Council received a call 

from Gemini Productions saying 
that Amherst College had 
guaranteed $50,000 for a one-week 
run, November 1 through 6. said 
Light. Amherst College had 
negotiated directly with the 
producers of the play, bypassing 
Gemini Productions, he added. 

While the agents had wanted a 
guarantee of $6,000 a nioht, they 
had agreed to the Council's offer of 
"a straight 75 per cent - 25 per cent 
split" of the ticket receipts, the 
smaller portion going to the 
University. Light said that a 
maximum of $36,000 could have 
been taken in at the University from 
ticket sales at the 2,000 seat Fine 

Light speculated that, as 
Amherst College" could only take 
in $10,000 at most" from ticket 
sales from the showings at the 460 
seat Kirby Theater, "some rich 
alumnus" will be underwriting the 

This was confirmed by John 
Callahan, general secretary of 

Amherst College, who, while 
refusing to estimate how much 
could be made from ticket sales, 
satd that an "anonymous donor", 
an alumnus, had put up the $50 000 
because he "was very interested in 
bnnging the play to Amherst, 

through Amherst College." 

Light expressed some concern 
that because a large number of 
tickets would be going to alumni 
and students of Amherst College 
the rest of the community would 
not be able to obtain a sufficient 
number of tickets. 

Callahan said that tickets would 

be provkJed to both these groups, 
but tha^ was "working with the 
comm&nity, including the 
University, to provide a fair and 
equitable distribution of tickets". 
Callahan added that actress 
Harris will be offered the use of the 
original Fmily Dickinson House 
which is owned by the College.

Veterans' benefits 
to undergo restrictions 

D%M Om...! I j^ 

By Paul Logue, Jr. 

Veterans receiving benefits from 
the government are due for some 
restrictions, according to a 
regulation directive handed down 
from the Veterans Administration in 

The directive centers around the 
area of special programs where 
independent study is frequent. 
Each veteran must prove his 
presence in the classroom in order 
to receive the ber>efit8. The number 
of credit hours will thus translate 
into dollars for the student, if the 
government finds this study worth 

The law states that a veteran 
must take the major portion of his 
studies in the traditiorial setting. So 
if for example he has six in- 
dependent study credits and six 
classroom credits, he would be 
getting a cut from the full-time 
beriefits to less than half-time, 
which means tuition and fees only. 

Some veterans question how 
they are going to survive on 
reduced benefits. 

Gerry Morton, a member of the 
Veterans Coalition for Community 
Affairs said the whole plan is "to 
eliminate us from the programs", - 

Morton said. As a system tries SWIllllIimg STeSi 

to pull itself out of the depression, - - .... *^ 

its needs for traditionally educated 

people rises, which translates into a

for women. Third WorW People,

veterans have been granted no 
other compensation other than 
education. But we don't want the 
traditional education that they want 
us to accept and must have our 
needs met in other areas, which 
often times is in special programs." 

The Legal Services organization 
is looking into the legality of the 
whole situation, trying to define the 
law in its strict legal terms said 
Gordon Roberts, also of the 
Veterans Coalition. "This is really 
going to. affect a lot of guys who 
have no idea that the directive has 
even occurred as will come back in 
September to find themselves back 
out in the cold." 

Veterans Affairs spokesperson, 
Stephanie Bourt>onnais said the 
directive has been on the books 
since 1974 but that the Veterans 
administration in Washington has 
just chosen to enforce it now. "We 
have scheduled a meeting with the 
Provost and hope that Financial Aid 
can help out some but things look 
poor for these guys," she said.

Since we have the perspective of 
dealing with the instituttons, we 
pose a threat to them as resisting 
their profit motives. If they try to 
mold us into the traditional 
educational role, we will reject It." 

Tracking systems, which account 
for the veterans' presence in the 
classroom, have been instituted In 
other colleges. Morton cites this as

"We work as a community group 
trying to make the University work 
for the community hoping to 
upgrade the living conditions of the 
people," Morton explained. "These 
programs have the effect of 
buikjing working relationships with 
other community groups to insure a 
decent living standard for the 
people. "Educational benefits are a 
matter of survival for many 
veterans right now. Having come 
from working class background 
before the service, being stranded 
by the economic depression and 
exhaustive unemployment benefits,

On Saturday June 26, the 
Amherst Conservation Commission 
held a "Clean Up Day" at the 
Puffers Pond Recreation Area. The 
effort was directed at removing the 
accumulated trash that has been 
strewn throughout by the persons 
usinq the area.

There are 500 high school and 
junior high school students from 
New York City on the UMass 
campus doing something more 
with their summer than hanging 
around the streets or trying to look 
for a job. The youths are oart of the 
Model Cities Program sponsored 
by Central Brooklyn Model Cities 
and Polytechnical Institute of New 
York, and they are spending seven 
weeks here taking H.S. and J.H.S. 

"It's the only program of its kind 
where kids are sent away for the 
summer and get H.S. and J.H.S. 
credit," says Clarence Knight, the 
program's chief administrator. 

At the present time there are two 
separate groups on campus 
comprised of 320 people each. Out 
of each group, 70 people are staff. 
The staff members consist of 
certified teachers from N.Y., 
college age counselors who help 
the kids out with their personal and 
academic needs, and a small group 
of administrators. 

The Model Cities Program was 
started eight years ago in Central 
Brooklyn and the youths involved 
are from middle as well as lower 
socio-economic backgrounds. If a 
teenager lives in the Model Cities 
area, he-she is eligible to become 
involved in the program. 

According to Jerry Quan-els of 
the UMass Conference Planning 
Service, the goal of the Model 
Cities Program is to inspire the 
students athletically and 

All classes meet in> Bartlett Hall 
and run from 9-3 p.m., a normal 
school day. Basic subjects such as 
reading and math are taught along 
with electives like art, drama, and 
creative writing. 

Since the courses do count 
toward school credit, the kids can 
graduate early if they come back 
each summer. This gives them a bit 
of incentive. However, to prevent 
the students from taking too much 
advantage of this policy, they are 
only allowed three courses per

period. A wide range of activities 
from bowling to swimming are 
taught, and on Tuesday and Thurs- 
days for two hours each day, 
students are required to experience 
each sport. Then on Mondays, 
Wednesdays and Fridays, the 
youths are allowed to participate in 
any activity they favor. There are 
also organized intramural teams 
that have been formed to compete 
against other programs on campus. 

"Everything is stressed," stated 
Knight. Academics are just as 
important as athletics in this 



Study hour is from 3:30-4:30 p.m. 
every day and then from 6-10 there 
are planned recreational activities. 

According to Jerry McGee, the 
recreation administrator, two hours 
of each sport offered are required 
of the student over this seven week 

Entertainment is also on the list 
of activities along with the long 
hours of study and body-building. 
The program has dances every 
Saturday night and the latest 
movies are shown on Friday nights 
and Sundays. 

Both groups in the program are 
being housed on campus during 
their seven week stay here. One is 
staying in a dorm on Orchard Hill 
and the other is staying in South- 

The student to college aid ratio 
is 8:1, and these aids have a lot of 
work on their hands. They have to 
constantly watch the students and 
on a typical day they are active 
from 6:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. "The 

administrators are tough," stated 
Quarrels, "if a kid steps out of line, 
he goes home immediately." 

Quarrels also said that at first the 
students are a bit restless due to the 
culture shock of coming from a 
totally Black community into a 
predominantly white one. "These 
kids stand out because there's no 
one else here, whereas if 23,000 
other students were here, these 
kids wouldn't even be noticed," he 

There have been very minor 
problems, such as the complaints 
that the kids make too much noise 
in the corridors when classe^fjet 
out. "Think back to your high 
school days," Quarrels said. "Were 
the halls ever quiet then? These 
kids aren't used jo college 
procedures. A few people forget 
these are high school kids." 

Knight claimed that "this is the 
best bunch of kids I've ever worked 

Is the program reaching its goals? 
According to Quarrels one can't tell 
as yet on this short-term basis. 
"But it does have promise. It's 
opening up channels and giving 
people avenues." 

According to the students 
themselves, one youth seemed to 
be a spokesperson for her friends 
when she said, "We really like it. It 

Taking tne opportunity to speak 
with the people involved in the 
clean up, they expressed irritation 
at the callous irresponsibility of 
bathers who throw disoosable 
cans, bottles, and other trash 
virtually everywhere, with little 
concern and no effort to place them 
in the amply supplied trash 

Questioning the Amherst 
Conse-vation Commission as to just 
how they plan to deal with the 
situation, answers were vague and 
lacked direction. It has been 
proposed that the police patrol the 
area more regularly and take action 
against those who find little

The American mind has suffered from the energy drain of emptiness and 
absence of meaning for many years longer than any care to admit The 
people are eager to listen to a leader who can make them feel good inside 
and Carter can do this. He does not speak strictly to the corporate kings 
and social elite, but to the more average sorts who have suffered as the 
government has moved out of focus for them in recent years. 

i am not crazy about Carter, for he is still an unknown quantity. I do not 
know what he will carry through and if he can fundamentally change much 
at all Hearing him speak to a dull, emotionless convention, I saw what he 
could do for an audience. After Mondale left the convention with blank 
stares and tiredness, Carter brought emotion and attentiveness to many 
faces. He spoke of jobs, ending discrimination, national health care equal

goes a long way toward surmounting a more serious danger facing the 
American spirit: a lack of faith in ourselves and in the potential for change 
in gening things together again. 

Carter leaves one feeling at least some sense of faith, which is far greater 
than the other politicians and candidates supply. Somehow Carter has the

"The (Olympic) Games 
are competitions between 
individuals, not countries... " 

from the Olympic Charter 

There she was, the voluptuous 
belle of 1896, with flowing hair and 
streaming white gown, somehow 
being able to hide the bruises and 
scars of an ungrateful past. 
Glowing in refrained beauty ^and 
radiating with regained vitality, she 
once again had managed to ready 
herself for the big party in her 

But alas, as so often before, the 
goddess of athletes everywhere, 
was to succumb to the ultimate 
degradation: once more she was to 
fall victim to brutal rape, as a 
wretching world helplessly looked 
on. Under the hands of none other 
than the host of the great Games 
himself, Olympia was soon to be 
reduced to a tattered and whim- 
pering shambles. And all this while 
her guardian and one of her closest 
allies idly turned away from her 
pretending not to see her shame' 
her agony. 

By now Olympia is quite dead, 
though her body is still going 
through the familiar motions, like 
the reflexes of a freshly sJaughtered 
animal ... 

The interference of politics with 
the Olympic Games is nothing new, 
but not since the Munich massacre 
of four years ago has it been more 
tragic and flagrant than in 1976. 

Here is a city, Montreal, which 
was granted the honor by the Inter- 
national Olympic Committee to 
host the XXI Olympic Games There 
is a good reason why the hosting of 
the Games is awarded to a city and 
not to a country: a city is not 

The rape of Olympia 

crucial moment when they could 
explode in a burst of competitive 
energy after years of training, sweat 
and sacrifices, along comes the 
country of the host city and 
commits what can only be termed 
as the sleaziest, the shoddiest kind 
of political blackmail imaginable. 
One of the invited guests of the 
International Olympic 'Committee, 
the Republic of China, representing 
nearly 17 million people is refused 
entry into Canada by the Canadian 
government. And all because 
Canada doesn't seem to recognize 
the independence of the Chinese 
from the island of Taiwan. 

Aside from the fact that there are 
two independent Germanies and 
Koreas, Canada knew from the 
start that the decisions on who shall 
participate in the Olympic Games 
rest solely with the International 
Olympic Committee. 

Yet the saddest paragraph of the 
enfolding tragedy has not yet been 
written: instead of recognizing the 
blackmail attempt for what it was 
and taking the proper con- 
sequences, the International 
Olympic Committee merely huffed 
and puffed threateningly before 
collapsing and going Into a per- 
manent coma. 

The message to the government 
in Ottawa should have been swift 
and unmistakable: denial of par- 
ticipation to any member of the IOC 
(International Olympic Committee) 
would automatically result in 
cancellation of the Games. No ifs, 
ends or buts.

dealing with foreign countries. 

Furthermore, in receiving 

protectorship over the Olympic 

Games the host citv agrees to abide 

by the Olympic Charter, and one of 

the rules in that charter states that 

"They (the Olympic Games) are to 

be free of any discrimination 

against a country or an individual 

on account of race, religion or 


Then, only a week before the 
beginning of the Games: the 
treacherous act. Fully aware of the 
fact that most of the world's 
athletes had already arrived and 
were anxiously waiting for that 

Had the IOC taken this position 
from the very start of the con- 
troversy, both the Canadian 
government and Montreal would 
soon have been on their knees, with 
the prospects of having spent $2 
billion on sports facilities foi 

The athletes surely would have 
been hard hit by such a step, but 
wouldn't it have been preferable to 
lose a battle in order to win the war 
rather than the other way around? 

By prostituting its ideals, 
especially that of total political 
neutrality, the !0C has turned the 
Olympic Games into a ridiculous 
farce, a hollow joke Too bad 
nobody is laughing. 

In 1972, just before the Olympics 
in Munich got under way the IOC 
arbitrarilv and again giving m to last 
minute political pressure, this time 

from African nations, excluded 
Rhodesia from participating in the 
Games. South Africa is another 
country that had to leave, because 
a number of nations didn't like its 
racial policies. Not that the op- 
pression of blacks in Rhodesia and 
South Africa weren't deplorable, 
they are, but the Olympic Games 
can, should and must not be the 
forum to carry out the political 
hagglings of the nations of the 
world. (That circus act belongs to 
the United Nations.) Besides, let he 
that is free of sin cast the first 
stone, like how about Idi Amin of 
Uganda ... 

Over the weekend 20 some odd 
African nations walked out of the 
Olympic Games to protest the 
participation of New Zealand, who 
had toured racist South Africa a 
few months ago. 

This exodus, though not to be 
condoned, can be understood. 
After ail, the many athletes involved 
had their marching orders from 
their governments back home and 
probably were as disappointed as 
anybody. Again politics rules 

As for the U.S. decision to stay in 
the Games after threatening to pull 
out in face of the Taiwan debacle, 
there were only two choices: 

The United States could call it 
quits, thus giving the Olympk: 
Games and with it the Olympic Idea 
that certain kiss of death. For such 
a walk-out would surely have 
triggered many others, not to 
mention the contribution by 
American athletes that would have 
been lost. 

O"- the Americans, despite 
everything, could stay In the 
defunct Games and hope for things 
to improve. Someday. 

The U.S., hooetels optimist that 
it is, chose to do the latter. 

So, even though Maoam 
Olympia for all practical purposes is 
dead, the dreams that once gave 
birth to her long, long ago, are still 
alive, at least in the minds of some. 
Maybe some day the world will 
accept the fact that most athletes 
don't compete just for the sake of 
seeing their country's flag raised 
over the victor's podium, but rather 
to be able to say "I have done my 
best. " When that day comes, 
Olympia will indeed celebrate a 
glorious resurrection.

A week ago last Saturday, the 
Miss Universe Beauty Contest was 
televised to nwillions of viewers 
around the world. I happened to 
have been one of those who tuned 
In to catch the festivities, but it was 
not entirely by choice that I 

A companioh and I had 
gone to visit a friend of ours who 
»-%as working that night at a local 
business which afforded him 
enough free time during hours to 
watch the "tube" as much as he 
pleased. When we arrived there, he 
already had the television tuned to 
the pageant and figuring that 
during the course of the evening, 
the television would serve the 
purpose of simply filling in back- 
ground noise, and that we wouldn't 
actually be watching it, I didn't raise 
any objections to what was on the 

As it tumed out, the three of us 
watched quite a bit of the Miss 
Universe pageant, and I wish now 
(as I did then) that I had never 
forced myself to sit through the 
entire thing. 

I was motivated to view the event 
by the fact that it had been years 
since I had watched a beauty 
contest, and I was very curious to 
find out exactly what my reaction 
would be to this sexist presen- 

My reaction? It was one of 
disgust at viewing women from all 
over the world who allowed 
themselves to be paraded on a 
stage and herded across some 
boats that were anchored serenely 

against the beautiful backdrop of 

The most beautiful ^irl... 

Hong Kong Harbor 

The judges, both male and 
female, viewed the seventy-four 
contestants and rated them, one 
after another, upon their physical 
attributes and supposedly upon 
how much intelligence they 
showed throughout the conducted 
interviews. If the winner is actually 
chosen according to the amount of 
brain power she exhibits, this fact is 
barely evident throughout the 

The women displayed them- 
selves in bathing suits which 
contoured their bodies very 
thoroughly so that the judges and 
of course millions of men around 
the world, could examine the 
contestants as if they were a herd 
of cattle ready to be sold in the 
marketplace. The men of the world 
got a free show this Saturday night 
as they were able to marvel at the 
physical wonders displayed by this 
"bevy of beauties," while probably 
almost an equal number of women 
in the viewing audience saw the 
physical characteristics of the 
contestants as pointing out the 
deficiencies contained in their own 

Pageants such as the Miss 
Universe Contest show women as 
more physical specimens to be 
looked at, turned over, and done 
whatever else with. It presents 
them as pretty shells that can be 
dressed up in elaborate gowns and 
sexy bathing suits so that the whole 
world can appreciate them for the 
attractive appearance they afford. 

For myself, as a woman, I find 
shows such as this one to be very

demeaning because they tend to 
encapsulate the view which society 
holds of the female sector. In 
watching this program, I felt put 
down as a woman because the 
persons involved in the production 
of the program and a large per- 
centage of these watching it, 
condone the idea of taking a 
woman's worth to be the physical 
measurements she can sport or 
how beautiful her face happens to 
be. It is degrading to be classified 
and rated as an object that can be 
controlled and enjoyed by men who 
take no concern in realizing that 
women, too, have a brain that they 
are capable of using more than just 
every once in awhile. 

The Miss Universe Contest Is 
meant to display the most beautiful 
women In the world. True, lasting 
beauty though, will not be found in 
a face, on the stage of a pageant or 
in the centerfold of Penthouse. It's 
found on the inside of every human 

I felt disgusted not only by the 
fact that the Miss Universe Beauty 
Pageant was a blatant display of 
sexism, but that It also showed the 
screwed up set of ideals people 
around the world live by. The 
contestants in the Pageant dis- 
played the physical beauty they had 
to offer and thus ascribed them- 
selves to the realm of the artificial 
world. Not only will women never 
find their freedom if events such as 
beauty pageants are allowed to 
continue, but society as a whole 
will be barred from examining what 
exists within each of Its members.

The inconsistencies of life 

To the Editor: 

I guess you could call this a letter to the editor, my s/am-bang to 

fcl^ta'f1,^H!H ??/'"/w^\T '° '"*• Should I bitch, or just retire 
^ackto the huff of the old philosophy, minimizing my impact on the 
world till I rouse the guts to do myself in, maybe by resigning to the 
vagaries of a Catch-22 extravaganza? 

O blessed silence. But what I came here to speak about was good 
old inconsistency. Before I ever set me maw on what I consider 
pretty decent cafeteria food, broccoli to be sure, I had to play the 
bureaucratic ping-pong ball, myself turning out to be an ad- 
ministrator ad hoc of sorts by orchestrating the whole razzle dazzle 
program from the bursar's clear to the Worcester food service office 
They hadn't got their (} together; my legwork or phonework helped 
in getting the summer school food together. Maybe a number of 
befuddled students anonymously served the same cause 

But I can forgive them, or be so humble as not to put myself in a 
position to be able to do any forgiving. I mean I understand that the 
food service had lots of things to clear up at the end of an academic 
year But what I can't understand is in another department, financial 
aid (maybe because I'm filling my gut well now in air-conditioned 

I'd been tracking down paperwork to apply for summer and fall 
work study. Today when I went in I discovered that there were 
several summer work-study jobs available and no one had wanted to 
take them, among those who had received grants. I would have 
taken any number of those jobs. But then I was told it was too late to 
apply (so I applied for the fall term only). 

But what to my wondering eyes and ears did appear but another 
student, one who hadn't appeared before, asking about summer 
workstudy opportunities. He was promptly given forms to fill out. 
Now what does that say for consistency? 

Now I'm not destitute, not yet, but on the grounds of order end 
principle alone, how can a financial aid office operate with total 
policy changes such as this taking place within three minutes time, 
apparently arranged by the incongruous notions of just one em- 
ployee? I'm lucky in that these heve been my only major runarounds 
here. I've heard a number of other people complain of more intense 
and widespread experiences. 

I do know that my undergrad school was much more efficient, and 
probably thereby saved people hassle, money, headache, etc Order 
and efficiency aren't necessarily impersonal, either, just as slop- 
piness doesn't imply a down home atmosphere. While I was in the 
same office I heard from another student, who had already applied 
for aid, that upon an inquiry he'd have to weit a whUe for answers to 
his questions because his file could be in "any of a hundred and fifty 
places. " Myself, I don 't know what all the hurry an' ■ nfusion is for 
Maybe I'm too trusting. 

PS. I was told by a hygienist that losing frustra.. , in the city is 
like taking the beef out of a burger. Viva la France.

By Pl 

Ano .eneral Francis Bellotti 

was in aowntown Amherst Tues- 
day afternoon in the offices of the 
Massachusetts Public Interest 

backing in his ever-continuing fight Program, now 

WItn the Utiltv rnmnani<>« 1 M« L 

Research Group (Mass PIRG) to rT^^'^^o ^^^"^ '^' 
talk with students and sta^.L .^ Facilities Siting Council 

talk with students and staff about 
their concerns, ideas, and corD- 

Bellotti began the session ex- 
pressing his own concern to stay in 
touch with reality and get back to 

the people. He said, "I try to come 
out to the public at least every week 
because I get so insulated in my 
office. " ' 

Bellotti, who displayed a good 
sense of humor with the group 
seemed very interested in the work 
of Mass PIRG and its activity with 
getting people concerned with the 
environment and its citizens 

Sam Lovejoy, nuclear power 
freedom fighter from Montague 
was present and asked for Bellotti's 

with the utility companies and 
nuclear expansion. He explained his 
role in a case involving Berkshire 
Gas and their request for an 
exemption from the Energy 

„ "If they 

receive their exemption request " 
Lovejoy said, "that will insure that 
Northeast Utilities will get their 
exemption request also, permitting 
them to proceed with their plans 
for the nuclear power plant in 
Montague. Bellotti said he would 
look into the matter for Lovejoy. 
Small claims courtroom and its 
reform occupied the conversation 
of the meeting for a long while 
with Bellotti citing changes he 
would like to see occur. 

Of these changes, night court for 
the working person was discussed 
along with getting rid of the cases 
such as the open container law 
which Bellotti termed 'silly.'

victims of crime who need special

Bellotti gave the example of a 
rape case. "If a woman goes 
through a complaint process she is 
so overwhelmed by the ordeal, she 
could be raped by another 80 men 
and not prosecute because it is so 
traumatic. We have to have 
someone counseling them and 
giving them support so they are 
willing and mentally able to go 
through with the complaint." 
Bellotti also wants the right of 
approval over the appointments of 
these special liaisons so that the 
legislature doesn't turn it into a

Guthrie, Seeger show 
draws folkies, politicoes 

By Craig Roche 

The driver was getting edgy, this 
i could tell from his sidelong 
glances and the way he snickered. 
In a reflex move of self- 
preservation, I nudged his shoulder 
and pointed out the next exit as the 
one we were to take. 

This was, after all, the tenth of 
eleventh time we'd been on 191 in 
the past week. Too many trips to 
crowded concerts at Colt Park, 
Conn. called for curative, 
revitalizing music, and that meant 
heading into the setting sun for 
Tanglewood's Arlo Guthrie and 
Pete Seeger show on July 13 and to 
the Music Inn in Lenox on the 18th. 

Music may soothe the savage 
beast, but I saw it whip a number of 
humans into frothing-at-the-mouth 
savages in Hartford to want to 
witness much more. I came away 
from the ^. Geils- Jethro Tull show 
thankful that no one had vomited 
on me. That was due to my at- 
tentiveness more than any 
vomitee's sense of decorum. 

A warm and social group of 
about 6,000 people cheered any 
and all material performed by 
Guthrie and Seeger that chilly 
Tuesday night. 

The crowd, an interesting blend 
of folkies, folkies, and politicoes, 
were able to come together around 

these popular singers and en- 
tertainers as easily as the audiences 
who saw the same duo tour in the 

Finally, rounding out the 
selection, is Collector's Item (on 
Phila. Int'l. Records} a greatest hits 
collection of Harold Melvin and the 

There is little one can say to fault 
or critique such a collection, the 
buying public made these songs 
hits. This is the only album by the 
Bluenotes I own, but you can find, 
as I did, great old and new hits here! 

"Wake up Everybody", "Bad 
Luck", "The Love I lost" are all 
here and more. 

When we knew the words we 
sang them. When we didn't, Pete 
taught them to us. To see Pete 
Seeger, especially when he's with 
his old friend Woody's son Arlo, is 
to share a sense of history with the 
real things sacred in America. Thus 
the closing song, "This Land is 
Your Land" was more spiritually in 
tune with the nation than the 
National Anthem, and, as Pete 
pointed out in closing, that song 
has never been in the Top 100 yet 
we all know it.

be purchased, but merely attained

Preservation Hall Band plays

By Malerie Yolen 

At the age when most people are 
content to relax in a rocking chair, 
the members of The Preservatiori 
Hall Jazz Band are swinging to a 
different tune - their own. 

On the cool summer night of July 
15, the spirit of old New Orleans 
filled the Fine Arts Center 
auditorium and lingered on even 
after the last notes of "When the 
Saints Come Marching In" ended 
The jazz band played the kind of 
music that can start an audience 
clapping and keep them clapping 
until the songs are over: 

The seven-member band con- 
sisted of Percy Humphrey on 
trumpet, Willie Humphrey on 
clannet, Marvin Kimball strumming 
the banjo, Josia Frazier beating the 
drums, James Miller on the piano 
Allan Jaffee on the tuba and Frank 
Demond on trombone. 

The banjo was a recent addition 
fo the band's instruments and 
Kimball gave it all the gusto he had. 
He played excellently for solos and 
blended in well with the wind in- 
struments and the piano. Each of 
these musicians played equally 

Frazier's performance on the 
drums seemed effortless. As the 
saying goes, "practice makes 
perfect ' and it's obvious that he's 
had a lot of it in his many years. 

In each case, with the exception 
of the young trombone player, 
Demond, the appearance of the 
members of The Preservation Hall 
Jazz Band was deceiving. They 
looked like old men who would 
perhaps gather together to talk 
about old times. But instead of 
talking about it, they make those 
old times come alive again night 
after night. Their talent, skill and 
enthusiasm haven't aged along 
with their bodies. They are aging 
gracefully while doing something 
they love. 

This love and enthusiasm is 
passed on to audiences of many 
ages. The band played to a 
pnmarily young audience at the 
Fine Arts Center, and the many 
hands clapping and toes swinging 
showed thet this pure American 
New Orleans turn-of-the-century 
music is timeless. 

Demond, tne youngest member 
of the band, played the part along 
with his fellow band members 
down to his short black pants 
white socks, flat leather shoes and 

'the New Orleans Jazz shuffle". 
The band worked well together 
on stage. Their friendly attitude and 
warm music melted down the cold 
barrier that is so often present 
between audience and performers. 

If space had allowed, many people 
would have been dancing in the 
aisles to the song the P.H.J Band 
chose for their encore, "When the 
baint s Come Marching In." 

Everyone was standing! wildly 
clapping hands to the music and 
humming the song, some even 
singing out loud. 

This band, supposedly only plays 
The Saints" out of New Orleans 
on special occasions. Perhaps the 
fact that the band and audience hit 
It off so well (which wasn't too 
surprising considering who was on 
stage) warranted the playing of the 
song. Whatever the reason, the 
music of New Orleans played by the 
internationally known Preservation 
Hall Jazz band is very much in 
demand in this area. They have 
played here every year for the past 
ten years. 

Hopefully, they will be back again 
next year - a bit older but still as 
good as ever.

Hot fun in the summertime 


By Craig Roche 

Although it isn't likely that a song 
will ever have more oif a 'summer 
feel' to it than Gershwin's 
"Summertime", all of us can recall 
songs that define a particular 
summer.. .Alice's "School's Out", 
Sly's "Hot Fun in the Sum! 
mertime" are two that come to my 
mind right away. This summer, like 
the previous ones, has seen any 
number of releases which would 
like to lay claim to being the 
summer song for 1976. 
If all were fair in love and rock. 

that title would fall to the new 
Beach Boys release, 15 Big Ones 
{\Narner Bros. Records). Much to 
my disappointment, it just ain't so. 
It has been a thankfully long time 
since the Boys have put out a more 
inconsequential album than Big 
Ones. Eight of the 15 Big Ones are 
oldies, those old enough to have 

The reunion album for Osibisa, 
(Island Records!, Welcome Home, 
flows with a truly African pulse 
beat. Songs are sung in English and 
African to an equally mixed in- 
strumental accompaniment. 

The end result is a seamless 
joining of popular music with 
traditional African songs. The cover

are dull stuff 

Where Lennon's recorded nod 
toward nostalgia had bite to it, the 
Boys merely gum it. This album is 
strictly for total Beach Boys fans, 
and not even all of them will like it! 
Compare their version of "Rock 
and Roll Music", the current single 
with "Got to Get You Into My 
Life," re-released single of the 

The Beatles did "Rock and Roll" 
better back in 1965, and Chuck 
Berry had them both beat in 1958. 
MFSB's newest, "Summertime" 
(Philadelphia International 
Records), is much more of a 
summer album. The cover shows a 
city kid leaning into a blasting fire 

Inside, the album drives with 
Philly force, and lots of humid funk. 
All the tunes, some by producers 
Gamble and Huff, provide good 
summer night music, and have 
become as essential to the eve as 
the sound of tonic water fizzing 
when it hits the lime and gin. 

Gordon Lightfoot has titled his 
new Warner Bros, release 
"Summertime Dream" but the 
closest I can get to it is to fall asleep 
when it plays. Straining for the 
poetic images at ihe expense of the 
lyric theme makes for rin over- 
sweet, cotton-candy like album. 
Take a big bite and it all melts in 
your mouth into nothing. 

right where they are headed, and 
can take you along too. It is worth 
the journey involved. 

Other albums that don't deal 
directly with that summer feel, but 
nonetheless are part of this season 
are Al Jarreau's Warners Ip, Glow. 
Jarreau is a singer- 
songwrighter who comes close to 
being an Al Green with more bite. 
Four songs are written by him, the 
best of which is either "Glow" or 

The remaining songs are ones he 
has picked from other writers, like 
Sly's "Somebody's Watching 
You". Leon Russell's "Rainbow in 
your Eyes", and Taylor's "Fire and 
Rain." Throughout, the album is 
entertaining and full of good music. 
One time member of Sly's Family 
Stone, Larry Graham, has made a 
fine album fronting Graham Central 
Station. Mirror, (Warner Bros.) has 
a great number of danceable cuts 
that flesh out as more than musical 

It is music like this that will keep 
disco music alive longer than it 
perhaps should be. 

So take relief from the summer 
heat and get into some of the better 
music being made this summer. If 
you can find an air conditioned spot 
with a good system and a 
refrigerator full of cold beer, I'll 
bring the opener and the records.

Taurus is going through a period of personal expansion and should 
begin the week mentally sharp. Communication at home could help 
you through rough waters now. Talks could lead to mutual good 
times later m the summer. 

Gemini feels mentally dull Monday, but the rest of the week turns 
around dramatically. Use this opportunity for important com- 
munications - talk, write, and record with confidence. This leads in 
part to better relations at home next month. 

Cancer is at loose ends now that personal pressure is off. You may 
begin the week feeling flakey, but pull yourself together to take ad- 
vantage o financial developments Tuesday and Wednesday You 
should at least be able to cut your losses. 

Happy birthday, Leo, and brace yourself for an intense week You < 
are m a good position to put long-range plans into effect, but ask 
yourself the hardquestions Monday and Tuesday concerning your 
personal limitations. ^ ^ 

Virgo begins the week feeling moody and introspective. Avoid be- 
mg-overly critical of yourself . By Thursday your energies are flowing 
more easily. Now s the time to start a careful analysis of your finances 
with an eye to expansion. 

Ubra can return some favors to acquaintances who lent a hand last 
nrionth. If you are considering investments now, you should probably 
stick with the sure ones and avoid the risky ones. The weekend is 
perfect for hosting a party. 

Scorpio has the vitality to initiate important career changes Mon- 
day but limitations also become clear then. Note them well, then 
push on with strong career progress. Turn to acquaintances for aid 
Ihursday and Friday. 

Sagittarius begins the week acutely aware of limitations on study 
and travel, yet this is what you'd like to be doing. Changes at mid- 
week remind you of where your true opportunities lie now - on the 
job and in community service. 

Capricorn's mind is completely on perpetuating relationships and 
joint finances now. Nothing rash will further this, so pace yourself for 
the long haul. Close personal partners as well as business associates 
can benefit from your constant but calm attention this week 

Aquarius should use Monday and Tuesday to clarify specific 
limitations to partnerships, then use the rest of the week to make 
what progress you can with both very close partners and business as- 
sociates. These limitations lead to growth. 

Pisces should address the hard questions on the job during the first 
part of the week. You can accomplish much based on the answers 
you come up with. A knotty problem at mid-week leads to an op- 
portunity for mental expansion Friday.

The Massachusetts ERA- once and for all 

Wednesday, July 21, 1976 

By Jean Con/ey 

Most people will walk into the 
voting booth November 2 and vote 
either for or against the ERA for the 
same reason - that they're sick of 
hearing about it. Never has a 
proposed amendment received as 
much publicity and been the 
subject of as much heated 
discussion, as the ERA. 

In case you haven't heard, 
howevftr, the ERA is the Equal 
Rights Amendment, which will 
become the 27th amendment to the 
United States Constitution if 
ratified by 38 states by 1979. Thirty- 
four states have already ratified the 

What you'll be voting on this 
November is the Massachusetts 
Equal Rights Amendment, not the 
federal ratification. Massachusetts 
has already ratified the federal ERA. 

The Massachusetts ERA says, 
simply, that "equality under the law 
shall not be denied or abridged 
because of sex, race, color, creed or 
national origin", and it applies to 
both men and women. 

The state ERA differs from the 
federal in that it applies not only to 
women, but to minorities as well. 

The biggest question about th^ 
amendment is one of necessity — 
do we really need an ERA? Doesn't 
the 14th amendment cover equality 
of rights? And what will anyone get 
from the ERA that (s)he doesn't 
already have? 

Apparently not, according to the 
Committee to ratify the 
Massachusetts ERA. They claim 
that current anti-sex discrimination 
laws can be easily amended or 
repealed, and that in many cases, 
the 14th amendment is simply not 

That amendment states in part 
that "no state shall abridge the 
privileges or immunities of citizens 
of the United States, nor shall any 
Slate deprive any person of life, 
liberty, or property, without due 
process of law. nor deny to any 
person within its jurisdiction the 
equal protection of the laws". 

But Supreme Court decisions 
interpreting the 14th amendment 

have been erratic. For instance, in 
Kahn v. Shevin, 1974, it was 
decided that special property tax 
exemptions given to widows can be 
denied to widowers. In Weinberger 
V. Wiesenfeld, 1975, though, it was 
decided that special social security 
benefits given to widows cannot be 
denied to widowers. 

The Massachusetts Committee 
to Ratify also claims that a state 
amendment is necessary because 
"it is the primary legal document 
articulating the basic duties, 
liberties and rights of 
Massachusetts' citizens." In this 
state, for example, the husband still 
has the legal responsibility of 
support to both wife and children, 
aHhough the Married Wonr>en's 
Property Acts of 1857 repealed the 
common law doctrine of coverture, 
under which the wife relinquished 
all property to her husband while he 
assumed the obligation to support. 

Under the ERA, both spouses will 
have an obligation to support each 
other and minor children based on 
the ability and circumstances of 
each spouse. 

Opposition to the ERA has been 

hard and strong. A weH-supported 
group, 'Stop ERA," headed by 
commentator Phyllis Schlafly, 
claims that the Equal Rights 
Amendment will not help women, 
but hurt them. 

In a news release "Stop ERA" 
said that the amendment would 
result in co-ed public toilet facilities 
and homosexual marriages. But the 
Committee to Ratify said that the 
Privacy Act will insure that toilets 
will remain "separate but equal," 
and the only change in the law will 
be that when men don't have to 
pay a dime, women don't have to 
pay a dime. 

Opponents also said that the 
ERA will put women "in the 
trenches". But the state ratification

the federal ERA is passed in 1979, 
however, women would be eligible 
for the draft, if reinstated. 

Areas that will be affected by the 
ERA are marriage — child support 
will be a shared responsibility 
according to the financial resources 
of each parent; divorce — the

failure to support ground for 
divorce <one of Massachusetts' 
seven fault grounds) would either 
be extended to both sexes or 
abolished (the failure to support 
fault now applies only to 
husbands); protective labor laws - 
limitations "protecting" workers 
from long hours or certain job 
requirements will have to be ex- 
tended to both sexes or related to 
the abilities of the individual. 

Among the areas that will not be 
affected by the state ERA are 
abortion, public rest rooms and 
private education, or homosexual 
marriage. The amendment will do 
nothing to help or hinder the 
possibility of an amendment 
allowing homosexual marriage, 
according to a Committee to Ratify 

At a recent debate in Springfield 
in which six supporters and critics 
discussed the ramifications of the 
ERA, Mrs. Agnes Smith "of Dor- 
chester, co-chairperson of the 
Mass. Committee to Stop the ERA, 
said, "God made men and women 
different, and if he had intended 
that they be equal, he would have 
created another Adam." 

Attorney Margaret Mahoney of 
Winchester, legal advisor to "Stop 
ERA", said that Massachusetts 
laws are adequate to ensure the 
equal rights of women in the labor ■ 
force, but "it's the rights of the 
homemaker that need to be 
protected", she said. 

Presently, though, homemakers 
are legally inferior to their wage- 
earning husbands in areas such as 
credit. The Equal Credit Op- 
portunity Act of 1974 states that 
banks and other credit institutions 
must make credit available to all 
equally, without regard to sex or 
marital status. But the Act itself 
gives no relief for the non-working 
wife, but leaves her dependent on 

Mahoney went on to say that the 
ERA would jeopardize a woman's 
"right" to be supported by her 
husband. Chairperson Smith added 
that women in this country want 
"the freedom to remain in the home 
to be supported by their 

"The feminist movement tries to 
put down the housewife, to show 
her as an abject slave surrounded 
by dirty diapers, dreaming of a 
fantastic job," she said. 

ERA proponents contend that it 
is absurd to assume that home and 
family depend upon the legal in- 
feriority of the wife and mother. 

They also contend that nothing 
in people's private lives or in their 
family relationships would change 
under the amendment. "It applies 
only to areas in which the state is 
involved", according to a Com- 
mittee to Ratify Fact Sheet. 

Of the 34 states that have ratified 
the ERA, two have voted to rescind 
ratification. Legislators have not yet 
come up with reasons why the 
voters wish to rescind, however. 
Early support for the amendment 
voiced by President and Mrs. Ford 
may have been a factor, but strong 
recent opposition from "Stop 
ERA" and Humanitarians Opposed 
to Degrading Our Girls (HOT DOG) 
might have spurred the voters' 
second thoughts. 

Utah and Wyoming passed the 
amendment in 1890, said proponent 
Leslie Paul of Longmeadow at the 
Springfield debate, "and neKher 
has suffered from unisex toilets or 
the breakdown of the institution of 
the family". 

The State ERA was defeated 
drastically last year in both New 
Jersey and New York. Surprisingly,' 
more men voted for the ratification 
than did women. Women, asked 
why they did not vote for the 
amendment, expressed the sen- 
timent that women have "all the 
rights we need ", according to one 
New York City voter. 

At least one ERA propenent has 
expressed criticism of the proposed 
amendment, saying it does not 
clarify the 14th amendment. "But 
at least it will get people thinking, 
considering", she said. 

Opponent Ann Connor of 
Hingham said the amendment is to 
vague and would allow the 
Supreme Court a blank check in 
imposing its own interpretation of 
equal rights. 

Pro or con, the ERA gets people 
talking about "equality" under the 
law, at least. Hopefully the media 
have not done a job of overkill on 
the issue, but rather have stirred 
enough interest and enthusiasm, 
and have dispensed the facts, to 
help Massachusetts voters make an 
informed decision on November 2.

Students make Belchertown life more livable 

ean Con/sv ;..._ . 

By Jean Con/ey 

Students, senior citizens and 
incarcerated men are what help 
make the environment livable at 
Belchertown state school, ac- 
cording to Sharon Fischer, coor- 
dinator of ancillary services at the 

Ancillary services are community 
services composed of five program 
components which serve the two- 
fold purpose of providing increased 
sen/ices to clients and educating 
the broader community. 

One such project is the Boltwood 
Belchertown project, which 
provides on-going volunteer ser- 
vices from students in the five 
college community. Gerry 
Morrissey, coordinator of the 
Boltwood-Belchertown project. 

said last semester about 150 UMass 
students worked on the project. 
This semester he hopes to attract at 
least 300 UMass students. 

The Berkshire-Belchertown 
project utilizes the skills and abilities 
of volunteers who are inmates at 
the Berkshire House of Correction. 

Coordinated through the House 
of Correction, UMass, and 
Belchertown State School, the 
project has been successful since 
Its inception in late 1973, according 
to project director Neil Rist. 

Seven men serving sentences at 
the House of Correction are 
presently working at the school, 
and as far as Rist can remember, no 
one has ever run away since the 
start of the program. The men are 
brought the hour-long drive to the 

school by an attending officer, who 
remains at the school all day and 
takes the men back in the evening 

Rist said the residents' relatives 
raised objections at the start of the 
program, but "we've since gained a 
good track record", he said. 

Then of course there are the 
projects inside the school itself. An 
Adult Learning Center teaches 
hygiene, dental care and crafts. 
Women learn to sew and bake. It 
rriakes the residents really feel like 
t'ley've done something, said one 
Adult Learning Center aide. 

Sheltered workshops teach 
residents the basic skills of an 
industrial trade as well as the 
responsibilities of a job - the need 
to pay attention, follow directions,

• Weekend celebration 


In Cuba, culture is part of 
people's lives, with theatre groups 
found in factories and apartment 
complexes. All people share in the 
making of the culture with 
distinctions between "artist" and 
'audience" being broken down. 

The art, music, film, poetry, and 
Iramatic reading of the weekend 
jpoke to the real needs and con- 
;erns of people, in contrast to the 
:ommercial mass media. 

The weekend brought together 
lifferent cultures found in North 
America and the Carribean. The 
>articipants of the weekend spoke 


to the need for a new society free of 
racism, sexism, and imperialism. 

The first night featured two 
Cuban films, "Por Primers Vez" 
and "Hablandodel Punto Cubano." 

the latter film concerning traditional 
Cuban music throughout Cuban 
history. Also featured during the 
evening was the poetry of African- 
American poet, Irma McClauren. 
Saturday evening, a cultural 
event was held featuring Pat and 
Blue - women foiksingers, a 

dramatic reading by Valerie 
Stevens, poetry readings by Mc- 
Clauren and Robert Marquez, and 

song by Monolo and Gloria, Puerto 
Rican protest singers. 

Throughout the weekend, an 
exhibit named after the national 
hero of Cuba and all of Latin 
America, Jose Marti was on display 
featuring Cuban posters depicting 
life in Cuba. 

Also shown were artworks done 
by the area's progressive artists. 
Mentioned during the weekend was 
a cultural evening sponsored by the 
national July 26 committee to be 
held in New York at the Manhattan 
Academy of Music.

Residents also attend bicen- 
tennial balls and other cultural and 
social functions, most of which are 
held in the education building at the 
school. This presents a problem, 
however. Residents in wheel chairs 
have to be carried up the twenty 
steos to the buildinq as there are no 
ramps. In case of an emergency in 
the building, residents would have a 
very hard time getting out. It takes 
three employes to lift the chair up 
and down the steps. 

Only two or three of the buildings 
are ramped, as a matter of fact. But 
with renovations which are 
scheduled to be completed in the 
fall, more of the buildings will be 
ramped. The education building 
"never will be, though", according 
to Sharon Fischer. "It would take a 
ramp wrapping around the building 
two and an half times, and that's 
too expensive", she said. 

The renovations also include 
furniture for the residents' room. 
Most have only a metal frame bed 
and nothing else, according to a 
former UMass Student intern at the 
school. "They're trying to make this 
place like a life, with real work and 
real entertainment, and then they 
go home to sleep in a cracker box 
with a skinny mattress", he said. 
Aside from the physical 
limitations of a state rurynstitution, 
though, most of the residents seerri 
to like being at the school. "You 
learn to adapt to the situation and 
after a while you don't want to 
leave", said Fischer. "You come to 
think of it as home, and in the 
sheltered atmosphere, you learn to 
negotiate the system", she said.

Iowa jury acquits Robideau 
and Butler of agents' murders 

By Jim Jordan 

Robert Robideau and Darrelle 
"Dino" Butler, two of four Native 
American men charged with 
murdering two FBI agents on June 
26, 1975, were acquitted by a Cedar 
Rapids, Iowa jury on July 16. The 
jury deliberated for approximately 
38 hours before delivering a verdict 
of "not guilty" to federal district 
judge Edward McManus. 

The three-week trial that 
produced the not guHty decision 
was a wild tapestry of government 
misconduct arxJ FW deceit as the 
defense consistently exposed the 
manufactured nature of the 
prosecution's case. 

Before the trial began the 
defense and supporters of the two 
maintained that no one knew the 
circumstances that surrounded the 
killing of agents Jack Coler and Ron 
Williams, or of Joe Stuntz, a Native 
man who was also killed in the 
incident that took place on Pine 
Ridge Reservation in So. Dakota. 
Some events that transpired in the 
three weeks of testimony bore out 
this contention. 

The prosecution based its wise 
on the testimony of a succession of 
FBI personnel and on that of their 
"star" witness, a 19-year-old 

Wednesday, July 21, 1974 

tensive cross-examination by 
defense attorneys Lew Gurwitz, Bill 
Kunstler and John Lowe. 

When the government's central 
witness was questioned by the 
defense about where and how he 
obtained the facts to which he 
testified under oath, the trial's most 
startling revelation spilled onto the 
floor of the packed courtroom. 
Asked where he learned the names 
of weapons supposedly carried by 
the defendants, the witness ad- 
mitted that a team of FBI agents 
had instructed him on the 
description and names of the guns. 
Further probing of his story 
revealed that in fact all his 
testimony was the result of 22 
straight hours of FBI "coaching" 
just prior to the trial. 

This "coaching" also involved 
promises of money, 24-hour' 
security and immunity on charges 
pending against him elsewhere in 
return for the testimony. 

As the prosecution rested its 
case a few days later, the 
momentum of the trial swung into 
the defense camp. Calling wit- 
nesses such as FBI Director 
Clarence Kelly and Idaho Senator 
Frank Church, head of a senate 
committee probing US intelligence 

committee had not investigated 
intelligence activities against the 
American Indian Movement (AIM), 
programs such as Operatiori 
Bicent (a counter-intelligence 
program presently in effect against 
AIM) were similar in content and 
goals to those waged against the 
Black Panthers in the late 1960's. 
The two-pronged defense 
argument, which also called wit- 
nesses from Pine Ridge who 
supported Butler and Robideau's 
assertions of having been nowliere 
near Oglala on that day, was ap- 
parently sufficient for the jury. 

After 34 hours of deliberation, 
they came back to the court and 
asked to have their inability to 
decide be accepted by the judge. 
However, McManus was pushing 
for a decision and would not allow a 
"hung jury." Four hours later, to 
the surprise and relief of many, the 
all-white jury found the two in-

Over 76 people attended the 
barbeque and birthday party for 
imprisoned UMass student Robert 
Earl Brown on Saturday July 17 
1976. The picnic was given by Sam 
Penn, one of Brown's closest 
friends and a former teammate on 
the UMass varsity football squad, 
who gave the birthday celebration 
at his apartment in South Amherst. 

Penn played defensive end for 
two years but was relieved of his 

duties by coach Dick McPherson 
after fellow teammate and 
defensive halfback Brown was 
indicted for armed robbery. 

Prior to the birthday celebration. 
Brown, who is cun-ently serving 
three to five years in Hampshire 
County prison in Northampton, 
asked for and received his first 24- 
hour furlough. He was to return to 
prison by 10 a.m. Sunday morning.

Ed. Note — UMass students 
Patricia Callahan. Monica Sheridan, 
and Dave Weisberg, a Hampshire 
College student, conducted a 
survey of Pioneer Valley Banks in 
April for the Massachusetts Public 
Interest Research Group 

Students in the Five-College area 
will have some help In choosing 
banks, thanks to a MassPIRG 
pamphlet entitled, "A Guide to 
Banking in the Pioneer Valley." 

The guide is based on a survey of 
local banks done by three Five- 
College students. 

The survey (see chart) details the 
checking, saving and Negotiable 
Order of Withdrawal (NOW) ac- 
counts offered at the dozen banks 
and credit unions in the Amherst, 
Northampton, Easthampton and 
South Hadley area. 


more important factors, according 
to Monjca Sheridan, UMass 
student who worked on the survey 
of MassPIRG. 

A look at the comparison chart of 
local banks reveals that there is a 

count allows a person to pay bills 
with checks instead of cash, but 
pays no interest on the money 
deposited in the account. 

Savings accounts pay the 
depositor interest but require the 
depositor to withdraw money from 
the account in person, according to 
the guide. 

The pamphlet points out that a 
convenient account is the NOW 
account, which combines the 
features both checking and 
savings accounts. NOW accounts 
permit depositors to earn interest 
and write checks at the same time, 
according to Sheridan.

* Guthrie 


A different kind of American 
music, though surely one Woodie 
Guthrie would know was real, was 
to be the peak of Sunday night 
when the Band performed at 
Lenox' Music Inn. 

Opening act Henry Gross played 
a 90 minute overiong set under the 
influence of Jack Daniels, as the 
8,000 people filed in all afternoon. 
Circumstance, rather than crowd 
reaction, dictated the length of 
Gross's set, for the Band's 
equipment truck with all amps, 
instruments and lights had broken 
down between Lenox and 

Figures that it would be at the 
most crowded event yet to hit the 
lawn that they would have to back 
a 40 foot rig in the mail gate and 
through the crowd. 

We survivea and were revived 
by a dose ot thp music.

New bank for CC? 

By Cliff Skibinsky 

A decision will be made "very 
shortly" by UMass Vice-Chancellor 
Robert C. Gage on whether to allow 
construction of a branch bank in 
the Campus Center (CO complex. 
If the decision is favorable, the bank 
wiil probably be built in what is now 
the music listening room in the CC, 
rathern than the Colonial Lounge of 
the Student Union Building as 
originally planned. 

The shift is proposed location 
results from a decision by the 
Campus Center Board of Governors 
(BOG) to allow the UMass Federal 
Credit Union to operate in the 
lounge, according to CC co- 
Director Ken Dean. 

The planned bank has been 
condemned by both the BOG and 
the student gove'nment. Both have 
issued statements claiming that 
since the CC complex is paid for 
with student money, it should be 
reserved for student organizations. 

Both organizations have also 
stated that the Credit Union 
provides sufficient services to 
satisfy the financial needs of the 
UMass community. 

According to Dean, the bank 
would keep the CC fee down and 
provide needed services for the 
community, including checking 
accounts, which are not provided 
by the Credit Union. 

Dean claimed the bank would not 
compete with the Credit Union as 
only "800 people out of 20,000" are 
members. The bank could also take 
over some of the cashiering ser- 
vices presently being handled in the 
Student Union. This would improve 
poor security there, said Dean, 
citing two "gun-point robberies" in 
the past year. 

Considering that the bank would 
pay for renovations, it is supported 
by a "strict cost-benefit analysis", 
said Dean.

Amherst to Mars: Local reactions to the Viking I story on Page i

Reactions to Viking I landing mixed 

While scientists worked to get 
Vilcing !'« , mechanical arm in 
working order for soil samples 
scheduled to begin today, campus 
reaction to the Martian landing 
were mixed. * 

Amidst weather reports from the 
surface of Mars, initial reactions to 
the landing ranged from "fan- 
tastic," to "a tragic waste." 

And one UMass geology 
professor, Donald Wise, was on his 
way to Pasadena, California, where 
headquarters for the Viking mission 
are located, to aid teams of

scientists in analyzing data sent 
back from the surface of Mars. 

"It's been really expensive and 
it's taken many years to put 
together, but I think it's amazing," 
Tom Amy, an associate professor 
in the Astronomy Department said 
of the project which landed an 
unmanned, robot-like craft on Mars 
last week. 

"The thing that's impressed me 
most is the little impact the thing 
has made in the media," Arny 

According to Arny, the Jet 
Propulsion Laboratories (JPL) in 
Pasadena, where teams of

Automobiles in Amherst con- 
tinue to be a problem in the center, 
the latest arising from a request by 
the- President of the Chamber of 
Commerce to the Chairperson of 
the Town Selectmen, Nancy Eddy. 

In the letter, James Lumley, the 
president of the Chamber of 
Commerce, has requested that new 
parking areas be a topic of 
discussion in a future meeting of 
the Selectpersons. Enclosed in the 
letter were some possible sites for 
acquisition, which have not been 
made public at this time because 
the property is owned by private 

Nancy Eddy, contacted by 
phone, said, "We need to find a co- 
operative solution to the problem. 
The business people have to help 
us out. I am personalty opposed to 
taking any more of the grass away 
from the common. But the Board of 
Selectmen have a committment to 
d strong business community. A 
cost study has to be made involving 
the possibility of new parking lots 
and the expanding of Public Trans- 
portation. South Amherst is in need 

of some better transportation links 
with the center for example, but 
money is a problem. 

In various interviews with area 
merchants, these comments arose: 

Tripod Camera Shop: "The 
problem is not parking but traffic. 
There are too many cars flowing 
through the center. Bob Normand, 
a worker at the Jeff Book shop 
feels the same and notices there is 
usually enough space across the 
street for customers to park. 

Merchants in favor of more 
parking include; Priscilla Robinson 
- Bill's Shoe Store, and Mike 
Tretter, a street vendor. 

Others who are in favor of more 
parking but not at the expense of 
destroying something of value are: 
Thomas Michel Jr., owner of Moe's 
Bar, who said, "The planning was 
really poor when they built the 
University as far as this center is 
concerned. My delivery trucks have 
to double-park 90 per cent of the 
time." Rob Orun, Owner of the 
Only Juice Cart, feels the same but 
added that people complain about 
the limited bus service. He added, 
"If everyone had pushcarts, there

some townspeople to be a problem that may result In

(Phnfos by Greg FranceschI) 

scientists are working together to 
interpret data relayed back to earth, 
handles "interplanetary probes" 
and receives direct funding from 
government agencies. 

Astronomy professor William 
Irvine said his initial reaction to the 
landing was "a sense of relief that 
they got it down safely." 

Irvine, who says he is eagerly 
anticipating the results of the tests 
Viking will be carrying out, in- 
cluding soil samples scheduled to 
be taken by Viking's mechanical 
arm today, called the landing "a 
historic occasion." 

"It (the landing! shbws we're 
living in a unique period in history, 
one that will never be repeated 
again," Irvine said. 

"Everything we learn about other 
planets tells us more about the 
earth's evolution," said Irvine, who 
feels the mission is "definitely 
worth the cost." 

Abe Shakarian, a Native 
American, f6els quite differently 
about the Viking probe, however. "I 
think of it as a tragic waste of 
money," he said. "I think there 
ought to be a lot more input by the 
American people as to the decision 
making of sending space shots," 
Shakarian said. "It's like buying a 
Cadillac while your children are 
starving," he added. 

Steve Ric'^ter, a student, said of 
the Viking landing, "I think it's kind 
of interesting. It's good that they 
have the technology to do that kind 

of thing, but I don't really un- 
derstand the significance of it." 

The reaction of Kathy McCarren, 
a worker at the UMgas library, was 
"Fantastic! It's not a waste of 
money. It's better than any other 
way of spending it," she said. 

Professor George McGill of the 
UMass geology Department ex- 
plained that scientists work 
together with engineers in the 
planning stages of such a mission. 

McGill, who has done extensive 
research on Mars, along with Wise, 
is not presently working on the 
Viking mission, but said he would 
be working on a Venus mission in 
the future. 

"Teams of scientists work with 
the engineers on the instruments in 
a step- by- step process.

Pasadena, could not be reached for 

New dean may fill part-time 
spot during fall semester 

By Jean Conley 

Dr. Mario D. Fantini may become 
the new dean of the School of 
Education here in a part-time 
capacity this fall, if Chancellor 
Randolph W. Bromery has his way. 

Bromery announced Monday 
that he will recommend Fantini, 
currently dean of the Faculty of 
Education at State University 
College at New Paltz, N.V., for the 
position. Bromery will seek con- 
currence from the Board of 
Trustees and UMass President 
Robert C. Wood. 

"Dr. Fantini has the com- 
binations of qualities, experience 
and sense of mission which 
coincide with the needs of the 
School of Education at this time," 
said Bromery. 

The School of Ed's "needs" 
referred to by Bromery are largely 
cosmetic, according to one School 
of Ed professor. "We need 
someone here who will help clean 
up our name," the professor said. 

The school's reputation has been 
in doubt for about a year, even 
before a federal audit disclosed 
alleged misspending of at least 
$84,000 and possibly as much as 

Former dean Dwight Allen 
resigned last year after a faculty 
member criticized federal 
procedures at the school, triggering 
first an internal probe and then 
investigations by federal and state 

Fantini was selected by a search 
committee, which Bromery praised 
in making the announcement. 

"He (Fantini) was chosen by a 
search committee which worked 
diligently under great pressures and 
I commend the members for their 
achievement", -he said. 

So who is this man Fantini? 

Can he restore dignity and 
candor to the School of Ed, which 
has undergone, as he puts it, such 

"trauma"? Fantini seems confident 
that he can do it. 

"Under no circumstances will I 
compromise the distinctiveness of 
the school and the kinds of things it 
stands for," he said in accepting 
the offer. 

"It has begun to calm down, and 
it needs a period in which to reasses 
priorities". Like former dean Allen, 
Fantini called for innovativeness in 
the curriculum. "Many of the 
programs developed there shook 
the foundations of education, 
awakening a new awareness in the 
field," Fantini said. But, he added, 
there is a need for sound 
management and administration of 
these programs. 

Besides his full-time position at 
New Paltz, Fantini is a consultant to 
Boston Public School Superin- 
tendent Marion Fahey. A native of 
Philadelphia, he received his 
Doctorate from Harvard University 
in 1961. In 1967 he was appointed 
executive secretary to Mayor John 
Lindsay's panel on decentralization 

of New York scnools. 

Fantini has worked for and 
served as a consultant to a long list 
of agencies including the U.S. 
Office of Education, the National 
Education Association and the 
NDEA Institute for the Advanced 
Study of Teaching Disadvantaged 

Fantini has authored more than a 
dozen books, including Making 
Urban Schools Work, Community 
Control and the Urban School and 
the soon to be published Alter- 
native Education. 

Present associate dean Grace 
Craig said of the announcement, "I 
think Fantini will continue the 
innovative programs begun in the 
past, but more conservatively. 

"I'm glad to see the search 
committee found him in a short 
time, and that they were 
unanimous in their decision". 

Fantini's resume is impressive 
The titles of his books and articles 
imply that he is at least aware of 
current educational theories and 

Tenants discuss 
rent control survey 

By Laurie Wood 

The Amherst Tenants 

Association (ATA) presented the 
results of a survey dealing with rent 
control to the Amherst Board of 
Selectmen Monday night at a 
meeting held in the Amherst Town 

According to the findings 
summarized in the survey, a 
sampling of tenants living in the 
sixteen major apartment complexes 
in Amherst indicated that: 

(1) Living conditions were 
satisfactory, although 58 per cent 
had grievances centering upon 
poor construction, maintenance, 
and repair of buildings and other 


(2) 47 per cent did not know who 
owned their apartments, despite 
there being Massachusetts 
legislation requiring that names and 
addresses of owners be clearly 

(3) 43 per cent had heard of the 
Landlord-Tenants Relations 
Committee (the sold existing 
recourse for tenant grievances). 

(4) The average two bedroom 
apartment without utilities rents for 
$232, but according to Federal 
guidelines, approximately 25 per 
cent of a family's income should 
have to be spent on housing; thus

The President and the military - 
industrial complex are once again 
seeking to sell us bigger and better 
ways of killing each other. This time 
the horror is to take the form of a 
deadly B-1 bomber. 

This fantastic machine is to be 
the icing on the cake of our heinous 
military arsenal. It will cost in 
excess of eighty seven million 
dollars to put this creature in the 
sky, which is about one third more 
than It costs to operate this 
University for one year, and the 
Pentagon is pushing for a fleet of 
over two hundred, with a price tag 
of $21.4 Billion. This will be the 
fastest bomber yet, with the 
capacity to carry more nuclear 
weapons than any other plane 
Further, the 8-1 can fly below radar 
and can exceed the speed of sound 
at tree top levels. 

Most people in this country buy 
the defense argument, but most 
wonder about financial waste as 
their tax dollars increase. Congress 
could very well vote for the 8-1 
bomber, not for defense, but 
because it will create 200,000 
primary and secondary jobs when it 
goes into production. In the 
defense circles, if you cannot sell 
weaponry by instilling paranoia 
about a possibly weak national 
defense, then you sell the murder 

The B'l ... bombs awav 

nisina iohs uuhiVh r>^..i^ i .. — ■ ■ 


by promising jobs which could have 
just as readily been produced by 
equal government investment in 
anti-poverty and anti-pollution 
programs. Our president, Gerald 
Ford, has already taken the op- 
portunity to announce his support 
for the bomber in Cincinnati, where 
a General Electric plant will be 
producing the engines. 

Beside the debate over necessity, 

there is the more broad question of 

morality. However, in the political 

and strategic circles, the moral 

question is considered secondary 

romantic, «nd unrealistic. One has 

to ask when morality becomes a 

central issue in the decision- making 

process of a people or a body 

politic. As we continue to develop 

even more deadly and horrifying 

weapons in competition with the 

"enemy", concern over the future 

of the human race grows more 

frantic. The leaders of either side of 

the world lead the peoples of each 

nation to spend ever increasing 

amounts of time and energy 

working toward the ultimately 

aggressive and disastrous spector 

of nuclear holocaust. In the case of 

the 8-1 bomber and the 

generations to follow - each new 

trigger to pull becomes an easier 

trigger to pull. 

Each of us, individually, deplores 
war and would shrink from the 
thought of killing another human 
being and their children, yet how 
easy it becomes and how com- 
pletely we are preoccupied with 
murder when we see other people 
as a foreign nation, a collective 
enemy. When will we, you and I 
face the central issue, which is not 
defense, not safety, not money not 
necessity, but murder? Sometime 
we should open our eyes, take a 
look at the violence of our world 
and begin to question why 
civilization is spending so much of 
Its energy and resources finding 
better ways to destroy itself 

Perhaps you were what they 
condemned as a "dreamer" once 
Did you believe there was 
something very realistic about 
condemning all war and violence? If 
so, think about why such loving 
and human beliefs became so 
unrealistic. Perhaps the people we 
title enernyare similar victims of the 
political- military process. Perhaps 
individually and in groups, the 
common people of the "other side" 
are not eager to Kill and be killed 
over some difference of opinion on 
some philosophical detail.

State officials object strenuously to the relaxed laws 
for many moralistic reasons that appear to have direct 
relationships with the younger drinkers, but could also 
apply to older people as well. They say that giving 
liquor to the younger inexperienced drivers is like 
giving them a license to kill. I agree with that, but that 
could also apply to middle-aged people. A drunk driver 
IS a drunk driver, no matter what age, and old drunks 
can kill just as many people and be just as dangerous 
as new drunks. 

Another objection voiced concerns the number of 
alcoholics there will be. State officials favor raising the 
drinking age because they wish to stop the rise in the 
amount of problem drinkers in the state. Opponents of 
the lowered drinking age also cite the increase in 
violent crimes among young people since the law was 
introduced three years ago, feeling that there is a 
direct correlation between liquor and violence. Maybe 
so, who knows? But, one thing that is not fair is 
denying 18-20 year olds drinking rights because of that 
hypothesis. What's fair is fair, and if they apply that 
reasoning to younger people, then they had better

One solution is to teadh the older generation more

Nuclear plant spillage 
poses no real danger 

By Jean Conlt»v . . . .. ^^ 


By Jean Conley 

There is no danger to human life 
from the discharge of radioactive 
tritium that ran through Western 
Mass. via the Connecticut river last 
week from a Vermont nuclear 
power plant, according to UMass 
Professor Jay W. Stryker. 

The spillage occurred sometime 
between Sunday and Tuesday, said 
Stryker. A quarter million gallon 
tank at Vermont Yankee Power 
Company overflowed, letting the 
radioactive water into a con- 
tainment tank, a tank built around 
the original tank to catch spillage. 
But the containment had a faulty 
seal and it was not discovered until 
Tuesday, when health officials were 
told of the accident. 

Stryker, who also works as a 
nuclear incidents consultant, was 
called by power plant and health 
officials and asked to assess the 
dangers to human and fish life. 

In a public statement. Stryker 
said that if people would feel better 
not eating the fish caught in the 
Connecticut River between Sunday 
and Tuesday, they shouldn't eat it. 
. But the plant called him back, upset 
with his statement. 

Stryker said what he meant was 
that if people would feel better 

psychologically not eating the fish 
they shouldn't eat it. He stressed 
the fact that eating the 
"radioactive" fish or water from the 
river is no more dangerous than 
that incurred when having morning 

But Stryker's concern does not 
lie with the comparatively small 
amount of water seeped from the 
tank. According to him, small 
accidents like this one emphasize 
the much more complex problems 
witfi nuclear power plants. 

Only one curie of radiation was 
released this time, he said in an 
interview, but what about next 
time? For instance, had the con- 
tainment ever been tested to insure 
that it did not leak? 

Stryker is essentially against 
nuclear power, and the reason is. 
he says, "human mistakes". Everi 
little mistakes with seemingly no 
consequences like Vermont Yankee 
turn into big problems when people 
at other nuclear power plants make 
mistakes too. They pile up, and 
become a very dangerous, big 
problem eventually, he said. 

He articulated the problem of not 
sensationalizing a nuclear failure so 
as not to alarm people. One safety 
department official asked him if he 
reroinmended evacuating the area 

may result in law suit 

Al' Pan/ I nni.a /. . » ^ 

along the river, he said. He an- 
swered that it would make more 
sense to evacuate the areas along 
Route 191 where people are much 
more prone to the danger of 
breathing asbestos fumes from 
brakes. In other words, people 

But then again there's always the 
problem of making an incident such 
as Vermont Yankee seem too 
tnvial. He said the response from 
the plants is usually, "it was only a 
small spillage". He feels the 
question is much larger than that. 

In the mearttime. Vermont 
Yankee's operation has been 
essentially closed down. A federal 
court has ruled that the order 
granting the plant its operating 
license must be returned to the 
Nuclear Regulatory Commission. 

The Court of Appeals in 
Washington ruled that the en- 
vironmental impact of wastes 
produced at the Vermont plant was 
not considered when it was granted 
its operating license. 

Anthony Roisman, a Washington 
lawyer for the New England 
Coalition on Nuclear Pollution, said 
Vermont Yankee will not be 
allowed to re-open next month as 
planned. The plant has been shut

L.S.O. spokesperson, Ellisa 
Hovagimiam, said a complaint has 
been filed with the Environmental 
Health and Safety department 
concerning the alleged violation. It 
is a code violation of the State 
sanitary Code to have no hot water 
in a living area. 

Hovagimiam said, "the possibility 

operated out of the kitchen area in 
back of the Student Union 
Ballroom, which has been looked at 
as a possible baking area for Saga

Readin', writin', and 'rithmetic 
have been the creed of high school 
education for what seems like 
centuries. But what can be done 
with the people that this old system 
just does not seem to reach? 

One solution which began this 
year at UMass, is an Alternative 
High School program. This 
program, located at 151 Hills Sou^h, 
provides a different and more 
personal type of education for 
these students with special needs. 
The way in which the education is 
made more personal is through the 
use of UMass students as interns. 

The employed staff of this 
program consists of one full-time 
teacher. Marc Simon, a full time 

aide, and two lent interns. The 
program ? .tjijzes UMass 

students an^. ijties to provide 
special interest subjects to broaden 
the curriculum beyond the standard 
academic disciplines. 

"Last semester we had one 
UMass student teaching plant 
sciences and even one teaching 
silver jewelry making," said Simon. 
There also have been classes in 
dancing, juggling, leather cr»^ 
pottery, and outdoor education. 
The Student interns are not paid 
but can receive academic credit 
through the Outreach Program or 
the School of Education. Also in 
conjunction with the, school of

On Wednesday, July 21, 1976 
President Art Hilson and Attorney

chapter of the National Association 
for the Advancement of Colored 
People (NAACP) walked into the

The Amherst chapter of the 
NAACP was recently formed and 
received its charter from the 
national organiyation on April 12. 
Hilson explains "a group of con- 

cerned citizens met in terms of 
looking at the possibility of bringing 
some sort of national represen- 
tation into this community because 
of the expanding Third World 
community here. 

There was a desire to bring in 
some sort of organization and it 
was decided that the NAACP 
would be that organization. When 
asked why there was a need for a 
branch of the NAACP in Amherst 
Hilson had this response. "The 
NAACP IS an organization of total 
dedication of winning the epic 
struggle of racial justice for all

Motley why did he become in-

chapter. "Three weeks after I first 
came to Amherst, a Black student 
attending Amherst College was 
hitch-hiking and was taken in a car 
and severely beaten and then 
thrown to the side of the road At 
that point, I knew that something 
was needed. We needed to have a

The NAACP is an internationally 
respected organization that is about 
67 years old and is probably the 
largest most influential civil rights 
organization in this country The 
basic strength of the organization is 
derived from its historic victories in 
the court system. "The association 
was created in 1909 by a group of 
Black and White citizens who were 
appalled at the grave injustices that 
some Americans were suffering 
because of race," Hilson said He 
continued, "The Association has 
steadily grown since that tirpe." 

The NAACP has recently con-

to the case of Craemen Gethers and 
Earl Brown, two UMass students 
who are currently incarcerated in

mistaken identity. 

Attorney Motley explains: 
"Regretably in America there has 
always been a need to rewrite some 
of the injustices that have hap-

Backstase at the Music Inn: 

Doc Watson and son 

By Paul Logue 

Backstage at the Music Inn last 
Saturday I got the chance to talk 
with Doc and Merle Watson, the 
father-son team of guitar pickers 
from North Carolina, and the tuba 
player playing with Leon Redbone. 

Q: What do you plan to play 
ton;ght. Doc? 

A: Well, we don't plan on 
anything fore we go on. We like to 
see how the crowd goes and play 
what they like to hear. But this 
seems like an excellent audience so 
far. The weather is good and that 
makes it nice to play for them. 

Q: Where are you from? 

A: I was born and raised in 
Boone, North Carolina, named after 
Daniel Boone, who camped in a 
meadow about 3 miles from my 

Q: How did you get here? 

A: Well, we flew up this time but 
we got a camper we tour around in 
sometimes, sometimes we just get 
in the car and drive. Some p)eople 
say. Doc why don't you just move 
to the city? Well, I tell them that I've 
traveled ^around the country a 
number of times and I've been 
raised in the country, so I'm just 
gonna live where I like it. Might as 

Q: How long have you been 

A: Well about 12 years now. We 
have seven records on Vanguard 
now, and five others on other 
labels. But we haven't had any hit 
records, nothing that's been on the 
charts yet. So as long as we stay 
together, we can make it. 

Stage manager: About ready to 
go. Doc? About 60-70 minute? 
you're gonna play? 

A: Don't talk to me, talk to Merle, 
he IS' the timekeeper. 

Merle: Where did you put the 
water for Doc? 

Stage M: It's down on the left of 
your chair. Doc, so reach down in 
back of the leg and we will keep 
you filled up. 

Q: What kind of guitar is that? 

A: It's a Gallagher guitar. 

Q: Have you done many dates 
this year? 

A: We have been on the road 
about 70 per cent of the time, but I 
don't count the number of 
engagements we do. People ask us 
but we just don't count 'em. 

Doc: There are two reasons t play 
around for people, one because I'm 
glad to be able to make a living for 
myself and the ones I love, and 
second it is great to hear the crowd 
is happy when I play my music with 
my son. 

Stage M: Let's go. Doc. 
We shook hands and Merle led 
Doc up the wooden stairs to the 

stage amidst applause from the 
crowd. Then I talked with Jonathan 
Dorn, the tuba player for Leon 

Q: How long have you been 
playing that thing? 

A: About 15 years. 

Q: Is this your regular job, touring 
with Redbone? 

A: Now it is and it's a lot of fun. 
Before I did a lot of studio work 
with Don McClain, Roberta Rackr 
Aretha Franklin, the Philadelphia 
Opera, and some television shows, 
even some commercials. 

We back up the band last week in 
Milwacky with over 23,000 folks, 
and that was a real trip.

relationships are buckling under

the generation gap has developed 
into an antagonistic abyss, it is

time. We were all diggin' on the

Doc and Merle started the ball 
rollin' with "Brown Bag Blues", 
both pickin' some mean guitars on 
"their Galigher acoustics. 

For their next piece, "Dog-on My 
Time", Doc apologized for the 
blatant sexism within the lyrics, 
saying that even at the age of 53, 
one can and should be aware of 
such issues. 

They played a few tunes from a 
new album called "Doc and the 
Boys Live", including a Mississippi 
John Hurt piece called "Spit Ball 

Merle displayed his finger-pickin' 
powers in the next couple of songs 
which were old time fiddle tunes. 
"Cypress Grove" was a good old 
traditional Skip James tune, 
spruced up to avoid imitation. 

"St. James Infirmary" and 
"Sugar Hill" got the crowd moving, 
two jumpy songs featuring intense

people from the audience, it was 
apparent that Doc and Merle were

Three albums to fill the void 

By Craig Roche 

You can fool yourself often when 
you set out to critiqye music. I 
recognize only some of my precon- 
ceptions about music, other 
prejudices go unnoticed until I re- 
read the article. Still others only 
emerge to you as you read, because 
I can't see them at all. I am con- 
ditioned against Alice Cooper and 
not until today could I bring myself 
to listen openly to his new album. 

It is therefore, much easier and 
more fun to get into music I like a 
lot. The record companies, holding 
back most summer release until the 
big fall sales pitch must have let 
these three albums slip, because I 
got them three weeks ago and liked 
them the day they first fit onto the 
turntable, and I'm still playing them. 
The easiest one to like is the 
latest in a string of fine albums from 
that natty English geezer. Rod 
Stewart. A Night on the Town 
(Warner Bros. Records) acutely 
focuses in on all the many styles 
Stewart has arrayed himself. Over 
the years we have seen and 
delighted in Rod the mod rocker, 
the bluesy crooner, the romantic, 
the drunkard, and the poet. It's 
hard to accept the author of 
"Mandolin Wind" as the same who 
penned "Silicone Grown." 

Demonstrating the same control 
that made his last release Atlantic 
Crossing a success. Rod again 
divides the Ip in half, with a slow 
side, labellld as such, and a similarly 
assigned fast side. I find this a little

together they 
make it happen! 


annoying, I prefer the transition 
from one to another on a cut-by-cut 
basis, but it may be that Stewart is 
aiming at creating a mood on each 
side. His vision then is of the whole 
end product and not just the single. 
He has written four songs and 
chosen five that ably construct 
moods of romance and robust 

Side One, Slow Side, features 
three of Rod's four songs, along 
with Cat Steven's "The First Cut is 
the Deepest." It's a true sign of 
Rod's talent that he's taken a song I 
really disliked when done by Cat 
and made it a standout on the side. 
It is n stiff competition here. 
"Tonigf;t's the Night," borrowing a 
riff from Garcia's "Sugaree" is 
powerful stuff, as are "Fool for 
You" and "The Killing of Georgie," 
which is r»iy pick of the side. 

The Fast Side starts out with 
Rod's return to the lewd tunes, 
aptly titled "The Balltrap." A 
surprise from the old days is his 
choice of Manfred Mann's "Pretty 
Flamingo." His rendition makes the 
pop song a bit more than it was in 
1965. Shows good taste and good 
memory, Rod. Thingj move right 
along from "Big Bayou" and "The 
Wild Side of Life" to the closing 
"Trade Winds." This follows the 
pattern he set on At/antic Crossing, 
when it ended with "Sailing." I 
hope it won't become formulaic 
because he's bound to run out of 
songs as fine as the two. "Trade 
Winds" is as winsome as the 
opening rhythm of "Tonight's the 
Night" is buoyant. They both move 
to the ocean's breezes and tides in 
an irresistable languid motion.

Rod's on the cover in typically fine 
sartorial array, champagne glass in 
hand. Had I another, I'd propose a 
toast to him. 

James Taylor, another familiar 
face, has a new album worth 
toasting. In the Pocket (also on 
Warners) boasts as star- laden a 
group of performers one is likely to 
find on any album. Messrs. and 
Mss. including Art Garfunkel, Carly 
Simon, Graham Nash and David 
Crosby, Bobbye Hall, Stevie 
Wonder, Valerie Carter, Bonnie 
Raitt, and Peter Asher. The 
preceding list includes only half of 
the contributors and would amount 
to nothing if Taylor had nothing *or 
them to do. 

Record reviews 

I am certain that he is as tired of 
the personna, the image that arose 
from his biggest selling period. His 
rpusic became lamentations, 
exercises in diminished chord 
harmonies, and dark lyric exorcisms 
of inner demons. About the time he 
married Carly, he seemed to come 
out of it. The first album marking 
this encouraging sign, Walking 
Man was met by outright jeers and 
hisses from critics still seeing the 
old James Taylor. It wasn't until 
Gorilla with "Mexico" and "How 
Sweet it Is To Be Loved By You." 
The acceptance of that album 
points more toward the public's 
maturing view of Taylor than vice 

In the Pocket, aside from being 
filled to the brim with fine music, 
shows us how much James Taylor 
has grown as a man and song- 
writer. He began with a little- noted 
gem on Apple Records, but 
established himself with Sweet 
Baby James on Warners. ' 

In retrospect, that album is more 
of a period piece in his life. The 
songs were culled from a selection 
he'd been writing in the five years 
previous. Yet, because that's what 
the audience wanted to hear, that 
was what he played. He became 
cast as the morose troubador, 
forever mourning to the strains of 
"Fire and Rain." This gradually 
became a large bringdown for all 
concerned. The songs James now 
writes are as positive ("Shower the 
People You Love") as they were 

As a songwriter, he tends to 
write in something of an easily 
identifiable mold. But as he matures 
personally, his use of typical Taylor 
touches also matures. "A Junkie's 
Lament" and "Captain Jim's 
Drunken Dream" are pure James 
Taylor music, yet sound fresh and 
because of the top-notch musicians 
he works with, innovative.

Jack McGill, director of the food 
service operation for the Campus 
Center, said, "We have to look at 
the expense of buying equipment 
for the bake shop and see if it 
would be economical to go along 
with it. If it costs over $1,000 to 

equip the bakery, then we would 
scrub the project." 

When asked about the input of 
students into his decision to allow 
Earth Foods to operate or have the 
bakery, McGill responded, 
"students will have no input. I will 
make the decision myself, based on 
what is best for the Campus Center 
and its food services. The earliest 
possible date for a decision is 
August 14." 

No study on the needs or wants 
of the student body who will eat the 
food is forthcoming.

Portrait of

Judy Collins 


Taylor and Stevie Wonder co- 
wrote "Don't Be Sad 'Cause Your 
Sun Is Down," one of the first co- 
written songs either has done in 
years. What might have been inter- 
stellar and amazing is just great. 
Too little of Stevie comes through. 
Perhaps it was he who wrote a 
large part of the lyrics, but all I can 
hear of the blind genius is his 
occasional harmonica sweetly 
zooming in and out of the tune. Still 
it is an interesting and daring 

"Money Machine" shows all just 
what James' current perceptions of 
the world of music are; it's a breezy 
and witty piece that is more sub- 
stantial than a first listening in- 

The lyrics are all included, a nice 
idea because so much of Taylor's 
music is filled with allusions to his 
past life and music, his friends, and 
experiences. Also documented are 
the many outstanding performers 
on the disc. 

A few years ago, I wouldn't have 
given Sweet Baby James directions 
down a country road, let alone a 
thin dime for the jukebox. Since I 
saw him perform at Tanglewood on 
a hot night in August, 1974, I 
became aware of his larger being. 
He is an outstanding artist and 
performer, one we will have with us 
for a long time if we are lucky. 

The newcomer to the group of 
three goes by the name of South- 
side Johnny, and fronts the 
aggregation known up and down 
the Jersey shores as the Asbury 

The album, / Don't Want to Go 
Home (Columbia Records) quite 
honestly might never have been 
made if it were not for Johnny's pal 
Bruce Springsteen, who's tabbed 
"The Boss" on the album. 

The Boss has written the liner 
notes, and two tunes, along with 
loaning out his lead guitarist, Miami 
Steve Van Zandt, who debuts as 
producer, songwriter, and per- 
former here also. 

After all the Springsteen hype, 
no one wants to be the next Bruce 
Springsteen, and unfortunately or 
not, the comparisons between the 
Boss' band and this one are 
inevitable, if not fair to either outfit. 

Southside shares with Spring- 
steen a common heritage born of 
locale, interest, and even 
association (he and Springsteen 
were coleaders of a band, Dr. Zoom 
and the Sonic Boom, in the sixties). 

Their musical styles have evolved 
from the same origins, rhythm and 
blues, and while Springsteen still 
shows traces of it, as in performing 
"634-5789," Southside Johnny 
Lyon and the Asbury Jukes never 
left the R&B groove. They are as 
similar to the J. Geils Band in style 
as to the E Street bunch, but 
Johnny's harp can never come 
close to Magic Dick's. 

The album opens with the title 
cut, "I don't Want to Go Home." 
This is an excellent closing song for 
a night of music and drinking in 
your favorite smoke-filled club. 

Constantly propelled by South- 
side's and Van Zandt's energy, the 
five man band whips out tune after 
tune of controlled frenzy. 

Following "Go Home" is a song 
by Solomon Burke, "Got to Gp^ 
You Off My Mind" that is a rousinc 
and hard recovery from the slightiv 
melancholy opener. This is followed 
by the hilarious "How Come Yo i 
Treat Me So Bad" on whi. ' 
Johnny is joined by Lee Dorsf / 
The fade with the two trading I'c ,s 
and quips is crazy, and loose. 

Fourth song, "The Fever," by 
one Bruce Springsteen is bound to 
attract a lot of interest. Lyon sings 
this in an uncanny-like Springsteen 

If was written years ago, and is 
an early version of the ■ same 

statement Bruce made on his first 
album when he did "Spirit in the 

The immediate differences are 
quite apparent. "Spirit" has lots of 
spirit, and is an upbeat number; 
"Fever' is dark and feverish, almost 
frantic. It shows the reworking of a 
similar theme and points to Spring- 
steen's talents, but Southside 
Johnny's impressive le.idtion is 
impossible to ignore also. It is the 
"Whipping Post" of the album. 

A one-day appearance in the 
state (at Paul's Mall) cannot satisfy 
my desire to catch this band. If your 
•aded, jaded tastes need 
revitalizing, this piece of plastic will 
do it. Like Springsteen's Asbury 
Park, I Don 't Want To Go Home is 
an auspicious debut. It presents a 
challenge to the band to equal on 
the next album-. But they will. They 
travel in good company, and didn't 
grow up with all that street sense 
for nothin'.

ticketing cars, said, "The Police

the chief told us to start ticketing. 
Sometimes I give out as many as 50

The police department did not

from Main St. at The Amherst

St. This includes 171 unmarked 
spaces and does not include the

Meanwhile, the trees in Amherst 
continue to die. noise and air 
pollution also increase yearly. The 
question of cars and space remain a 
hot topic in Amherst, and the 
Northeast Bypass, in turn, remains 
looming in the background.

Not all the athletics in Amherst 
last week were on television. 

While Nadia Comaneci was 
dazzling the world in gymnastics, 
Gary King was at the Sugarloaf 
summer track meet winning the 
long jump (20'1iy,") the discus 
(130'6') and the shot put (43'0"), 
and also taking second in the 120 
yard high hurdles, in 15.7 and third 
in the 100 yard dash in 10.7. 

Gary is an assistant track coach 
at UMass and a veteran of the 1972 
Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon. 

He had hoped to return to the 
trials this year, but injuries in the 
winter and spring interrupted his 
training so that when the time 
came, he wasn't yet ready. 

Another veteran of Olympic 
trials, Tom Derderian, was also a

winning the 2-mile in 9:39, over 
UMass calculus teacher Mark

4:28.6, catching milkman Tony 
Wilcox in the last 40 yards, after 
Wilcox had lead the entire race, at 
times by as much as 60 yards. Tim 
Russell dominated the springs, 
taking the 100 in 10.0 and the 220 iri 
22.4. Charlotte Lettis, who ran on 
the UMass Men's cross country 
team in the years before UMass had 
a women's team, won the mile for 
the women in 5:05.5. Charlotte also 
tried out for this year's Olympic

The lawyer said the ruling would 
have "major, enormous 

ramifications for all other nuclear 
power plants." 

The Vermont Nuclear Advisory 

Board, which oversees the plant, 
scheduled a special meeting to 
discuss the discharge into the 
Connecticut River. 

One board member said he did 
not have any idea what the action 
of the board might be. "We'll just 

have to wait to see the 100- page 
ruling from the Court of Appeals, 
then we'll meet and discuss what 
action should be taken", he said. 
Plant officials also would not 
comment on the accident until they 
reviewed the ruling.

By Scott Hayes 

Boston - The place was Fenway 
Park all right, you could tell by the 
blinking lights atop the Prudentiai 
Tower beyond the right field stands 
and the familiar faces during 
batting practice. 

But somehow it wasn't the 
same ballpark as the one that was 
on the Causeway St. site a year 
ago. And then again, maybe the 
changed atmosphere, a reciprocal 
of the one Red Sox fans lived with 
in 1975 made it seem like a 

Duane Kuiper opened the game 
with a single and after Frank Duffy 
hit into a force play, Rick Manning 
singled off Boston started Luis 

Rico Carty followed with a 
double to drive in two runs and the 
Red Sox trailed 2-0 going into the 
t)ottom of the first inning. 

The team spirit that is so much a 
part of basebaU was gone from the 
Boston squad, the defending 
American League champions. 

A Red Sox fan noted that the 
only time the ptayers hollered from 
the dugout was to argue a call by 

home plate umpire Marty 
Springstead that Carl Yastrzemski 
didn't like. There was little en- 
couragement from the bench for 
the players on the field. 

It must be hard to prepare 
mentally for the remainder of the 
season when a team that was in 
first place in its division one year 
ago finds itself 18 games behind the 
division leader and tied for last 

With two outs in the bottom of 
the first Fred Lynn singled and 
Yastrzemski doubled to center field, 
and 21,897 fans prayed that the 
slump would end. 

But that was before Luis Tiant, 
the hero of last season for many, 
was shelled in the top of the second 
inning. Buddy Bell and Charlie 
Spikes hit consecutive doubles 
before Ray Fosse bunted, moving 
Spikes to third. Kuiper singled 
home a run and Duffy collected a 
base hit that brought week- old 
coach Don Zimmer to the mound 
and Reggie Cleveland in from the 

A sacrifice fly scored the third 
run of the inning and the Indians led 

The fans really wanted 
something to cheer about - like a 
walk drawn by Denny Doyle in the 
third and Carlton Fisk's ensuing 
bloop single. But the Red Sox are 
merely wearing the same uniforms 
as the 1975 AL champions and 
Lynn hit a low line drive that left 
fielder George Hendrick snared via 
a tumbling catch and then 
recovered to double up Fisk, who 
was caught way off first base. 

As the evening went on, the boos 
grew louder. For nearly 22,000 fans 
who refused to accept that Boston 
had lost six games in a row and 14 
of its last 17 games including a 6-5 
loss to New York [after the Red Sox 
had built a seemingly in- 
surmountable 5-0 lead] it was a 
version of "Monday Night 
Baseball", at its worst. 

And it didn't take an expert 
observer to see that the team from 
Boston was demoralized; that the 
fans were frustrated and that 
nobody understands why it is all 
happening the way it is. 

Fosse singled to open the 
seventh and Kuiper followed with 
his third single of the night. After 
Cleveland struck out the next two 

batters, Carty rapped his second 
two-run double of the game and 
Jim Willoughby replaced Cleveland 
on the mound. Hendrick drove in 
yet another run with a double to 
give the Indians an 8-3 advantage. 
Manning and Dwight Evans 
traded final- inning solo homers for 
the fans who stayed till the end. 

The crowd quietly filed out of the 

ballpark after Doyle struck out to 
end the game. History Just isn't 
repeating itself in the AL 's Eastern 
Division and it looks like the Red 
Sox won't be repeating as 
champions. The team that was atop 
the division at this time a year ago 
finds itself with a 42-52 record 
[before last night's game with the 
Indians \ and it's a long way to the 
top of the stairs.

A Broadway theatre series, the 
first of its kind at the Fine Arts 
Center, will be coming to campus in 
September, according to Fritz 
Steinway, director of the Fine Arts 

Among the events scheduled for 
the Fine Arts Center will be a 
special theatrical event, the 
National Touring production of 
"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's 
Nest," a play by Dale Wasserman 
from the novel by Ken Kesey. The 
play is scheduled to be presented 
on September 15. 

The series itself will feature four 
recent Broadway hit shows in 
addition to "One Flew Over the 
Cuckoo's Nest." 

"A Little Night Music" will open 
the four-p>erformance series on 
September 19. The play, inspired by 
Ingmar Bergman's movie, "Smile 
of a Summer Night," received six 
Tony awards in 1973. 

The bicentennial musical, 
"1776," will be the second event in 
the series. The show, which won 
the 1969 Tony award for best 
musical, will be performed on 
October 15, 16, 17, 23 and 24. 

Peter Schaffer's drama, 
"Equus", now in its third year on 
Broadway is the third event of the 
series, scheduled for December 9. 

The final event in the series will 
star Barrie Ingham in the Royal 
Shakespeare Company production 
of "Sherlock Holmes," which will 
be performed on April 28. 

Steinway, creator of the series, 
called the events "supplemental" 
to the shows brought to the Center 
by the Fine Arts Council. 

According to Steinway, tickets 
are presently on sale in the Fine 
Arts Center. The performances will 
be held in the Center's Concert Hall 
at 8 p.m.

In a summer deep into an 
"American idea". There could have 
been no better group to play at the 
Music Inn in Lenox than The Band. 
And while the afternoon was 
marred by the two hour delay of the 
group's equipment (the truck 
carrying it had broken down on the 
road), the masters of music were 
able to summon up magic enough 
to erase the glum moments spent 
waiting the opening notes. 

Their music is a fragile element. 
Closely associated with Bob Dylan, 
the Band has been playing to 
people for more than 15 years. As 
each year passes, the music grows 
more mellow and tasteful, like fine 
wines. Leader and writer Robbie 
Robertson chose to remain as 
enigmatic and shadowy as his 
friend Dylan does. Aside from a few 
song introductions, Robertson 
never spoke nor sang a word all 
evening. The 7,000 people were not 

let down, though, as first rate vocal 
performances were turned in by 
Levon Helm, Rick Danko, and 
Richard Manuel. 

Their stage set-up is dominated 
by Garth Hudson, who sits high up 
in center stage behind his Ham- 
mond organ. In the fore are Danko 
on bass and Robertson on guitar. 
To Hudson's left is the drummer, 
Manuel, who looks across stage to 
Heim at the keyboards. In this way, 
the members of the group seem to 
play as much to themselves as to 
the audience. 

The choice of songs had few' 
surprises, but satisfied almost all. 
They were drawn mainly from their 
Rock of Ages album, a live 
recording, which in turn was made 
up of their first two albums. A 
smattering of numbers came off 
their latest album. Northern Lights, 
Southern Cross, but they omitted 
the strongest, most 

autobiographical of them, in favor 
of more rolicking selections. 

The Band has four Canadian 
citizens in all, yet the music they 
play and the words they sing melt 
into a timeless American song. 

It echoes from -out of our shared 
past into an uncertain future, 
resonant with the feelings of our 
land. The true American Dream, 
that of simple men and women. 

living and working together 
building up from this earth, was 
celebrated in no finer manner this 
Bicentennial summer than in the 
music we heard that Sunday night. 

i hope that there is still this music 
at the Tricentennial. And if there is 
an America, then there certainly will

Gage resigns administrative post Story on page i 

August 4, 1976 

Cover story 


Vice Chancellor for Student 
Affairs Robert W. Gage will not 
return to his Whitmore office this 
semester, or ever for that matter. 
Gage, Vice Chancellor since 1972, 
has resigned. 

He will spend the fall on sab- 
batical leave at Harvard University, 
where he received his M.D. in J 942. 
He says he will re familiarize himself 
with epidemiology, biostatistics and 
public health policy there before 
returning to a full-time teaching 
position in the UMass Division of 
Public Health. 

Gage leaves post in favor of teaching 

Dr. Randolph W. Bromery, who 
granted Gage's request to be 
relieved of his administrative duties, 
said it was with "deep regret and 
full understanding" that he will 
watch Gage leave. 

Staff reporter Claudia Riemer 
spoke with Dr. Gage about his 
administrative days at UMass, his 
"weariness",' and student con- 
frontations with administration 
during his Vice Chancellorship. 

Dr. Robert Gage has seen UMass 
go through many changes 
academically and in the physical 

make up of the campus itse'lf since 
he first came to UMass, he said in 
an interview shortly after his 

"When I was an undergrad, 
UMass basically catered to the Arts 
and Sciences," recalled Dr. Gage. 
"There were none of the many 
special programs we offer now, 
there wasn't even the school of 
business!" There was very little 
housing then and students had to 
look for it themselves. I could only 
find an unhealed room up town," 
he said. "Students now don't 
realize that the whole housing 
system had really been built 
because of student request and 
need. Students, when I went to 
school here, had more of a feeling 


He found supervising the 
building of what is now the in- 
firmary complex and the system of 
public health services at the 
University "very satisfying". He 
said he wanted to build a system of 
good care at a low fee, to provide 
students with an accessible staff of 
highly professional physicians, 
nurses, and para-medics at a 
minimum cost. "This could not 
have been accomp.ished just by 
myself," acknowledged Dr. Gage. 
"There is no other place in the 
country that has the number of 
quality of people as the health 
services at UMass." 

In 1971, Dr. Gage became acting 
Vice Chancellor and in 1972

the word most used in ad-

Dr. Gage. I think that some 
students do not really wish some of

and the administration to be solved, 
but would rather they remain as 
issues. For remaining as issues,

^Clerical' error in 
CC bond package 

By Jane Steinberg 

An error of $472,000 has recently 
been discovered in the Campus 
Center Bond Prospectus released 
by the University Treasurer and the 
University of Massachusetts 
Building Authority. In a recent 
memorandum to President Wood, 
Chancellor Randolph Bromery 
referred to the error as a 'clerical' 
error. This clerical error has created 
an overstatement of revenue for the 
Campus Center's 1976 Year End 
Cash Balance. 

A recommendation that- the 
University identify and commit 
other University funds to make up 
the $472,000 will insure protection 
for the Building Authority Bon- 
dholders, according to Bromery's 
memorandum. The proposal to 
cover this overstatement would 
come from the following areas: (1) 
University Trust Fund Interest - 
1976 Year End Balance $140,000, 
and Trustee Reserve $60,000; (2) 
Rental (Campus funds) $200,000; 
and (3) Loan (Student Health 
Services Trust Fund) $72,000. 

Allocation of Trust Fund Interest 
Reserve ($200,000) and the short 
term loan from the Student Health 
Trust Fund ($72,000) must be 
approved by the Trustees. 

When Paul Cronin, Student 
Government Co-President and 
Trustee was asked about the 
overstatement, he responded, "this 
will have little, if any, effect on 
students. The only way students 
could be affected would be by the 
loan from the Student Health 
Services Trust Fund. "This is very 
unlikely," Cronin added, "as there 
is presently enough money in that 
trust fund, and the loan will be paid 
back within a year." 

The overstatement of the bond 
prospectus resulted from the 
amount of $472,000 being included 
twice on revenue schedules 
compiled by the University 
Treasurer and the University 
Building Authority. The total ac- 
count for the Campus Center Year 
End Cash Balance was about $1.2 
million, according to Cronin. 

The bond prospectus is part of an 
informational package about the 
Campus Center for anyone in- 
terested in purchasing Campus 
Center bonds. The compilation of 
the prospectus originates with 
information the Campus Center 
provides to the Treasurer's Office, 
and the Building Authority reviews 
the prospectus. The Trustees have 
to give final approval before it goes 
out for sale. 

for the school. He said this feeling 
was due in part to a function of the 
times and a function of the smaller 
size of the University which enabled 
everyone to know each other. 

Dr. Gage studied medicine at 
Harvard Medical School after 
graduating from UMass, served in 
the war, and then started a general 
practice in Northern Pennsylvania 
"where the nearest hospital was 18 
miles away," he said. He then 
settled back in Amherst with a 
private practice and taught Public 
, Health here until 1960 when he 
became Director of the University 
Health Services. 

Conditions at the start of his 
directorship were "rather primitive" 
said Dr. Gage. The infirmary 
consisted of three buildings; an old 
converted horse barn and two 
smaller buildings which were used 
for isolation and an out patient 

assumed the position of Vice 
Chancellor for Student Affairs. 
After working so actively at the 
Health Services, Dr. Gage decided 
to seek an administrative position 
because he felt he could influence 
the University as a whole in building 
a total system which would provide 
for students' needs. 

"It is for the next person to 
decide how successful I have been 
as Vice ChancellorTtut my decision 
to leave is a personal one. Frankly, I 
am weary of the process. I would 
like to be in the position where I 
make a direct impact, where I am 
doing something that I feel makes a 
difference. So, I would like to go 
back to teaching." 

"My only contact with students 
right now is as an adversary, and I 
find this the hardest thing for me to 
deal with. To be an administrator, in 
the best sense, is to be political and 

be in a position where 
something I feel

people and ways to go about 
solving the many problems in in- 
terrelationships as they come up. I 
am more iterested in exploring this 
with students than battling with 
them," he said. 

SGA Co-President Paul Cronin 
said that the Gage resignation was 
"no surprise", and that rumors had 
been circulating about the Vice 
Chancellor for some time. 

"It was hard for Dr. Gage to fill 
that office," he said. "A Vice 
Chancellor should be a strong voice 
for students, but it was difficult for 
him to do this when he had to be an 
advocate for such things as rent 
control at the same time." 

In regard to appointing an acting 
Vice Chancellor until the new one is 
found, Cronin said that Chancellor 
Bromery has promised to consult 
with him and SGA co-president Jay 
Martus before making a decision.

Former UMass professor Cleo 
Abraham was found guilty Monday 
of embezzling $28,875 from a 
federally funded program at UMass 
to provide college educations for 
disadvantaged Worcester 

District Judge Joseph L. Tauro 
dismissed a second charge of 
conspiracy against Abraham earlier 
in the week. The charge alleged 
that Abraham conspired with a 
Worcester school official, George 
P. Melican, to embezzle the money. 
Melican administed the federal 
grant while he was a Worcester 
school official. He is now a dean at 
Worcester State College, and he is 
scheduled for trial August 16. 

Testimony said Abraham 
deposited the money in his personal 
bank account. The testimony said 
the money was used for trips, 
including one to Puerto Rico. 

Abraham left UMass last year to 
teach in South Carolina. He is also 
awaiting trial in Hampshire Superior 
cqurt on a question of a $7,150 
shortage in a teacher training 
program sponsored by UMass. 

Abraham worked at UMass in 
September of 1970. He resigned in 
January of last year after UMass 
assistant dean for business. Bob H. 
Suzuki, alleged Abrahani misused 
school funds. During his years here, 
Abraham also served as director 
and Budget officer for the 

The money for the Worcester 
program came from some $15 
million in grants to the School of 
Education when it gained national 
recognition as a leader in innovative 
education under Dean Dwight W. 
Allen. Allen, 'who was not im- 
plicated in the contrpversy, 
resigned in 1975 when a federal 
audit disclosed alleged misspending 

of at least $84,000 and possibly as 
much as $365,000. 

Chancellor Randolph W. 
Bromery has proposed Mario D. 
Fantini, presently dean of the 
faculty of Education at State 
University College at New Paltz, N. 
Y., to fill the dean's position. Fantini 

has accepted the nomination, but 
the nomination must be concurred 
with the Board of Trustees and

Montreahthe political games 

In the last few weeks we have seen the Olympic 
Games become a political football. There is a growing 
fear that in the future, member nations will use the 
Games to set the stages for boisterous political 
confrontations. Such problems couid conceivably 
jeopardize the continuation of the Olympics. 

The recent skirmish among competitors and of- 
ficials was just another in a long line of politically 
induced incidents. For those who aren't familiar with 
the goings-on, part of the problem arose when 
Canada refused to admit athletes from Taiwan under 
the name of The Republic of China, because they had 
previously severed diplomatic relations With Taiwan. 
In a separate problem, all except two of the African 
nation teams boycotted the Olympics in protest of 
racial policies of South Africa, a nation barred from 
competition. Further complications arose when the 
United States considered taking its 534 athletes out of 
competition in protest of the Canadian action. 

Since when has the Olympics become an arena for 
politics instead of sports? Can't people put aside their 
political prejudices for just a little while? Can't they 
just act like healthy, ordinary sports people for a few 
weeks? (or are they trying to tell us that their lives are 
based solely on politics and nothing else?) Certain 

nations should not be kept out of sports competitions 
simply on the basis of political and national policies of 
the sponsoring country. No one nation should have 
the right to exclude a country purely on the basis of 
disapproval of internal policy. 

With all the consideration recently for the teams as 
a whole, has anyone considered the feelings of the 
individual athletes themselves? Imagine training for 
several years just to be able to come to the Olympics, 
only to be sent home; it's unfair and grossly unjust to 
all those competitors who dedicate themselves so 
unfailingly to their sport. Disappointment must be 
keen indeed when they get so close to the medals and Cr\tr\ m ^rn f o*-ir 
then have to realize that they are being used as ^^^lUlliCIl Idl y 
political pawns and won't even be allowed to com- 

"Well, what I want is a nice quiet 
place to live, where I can share a 
house with some good people and 
have a little garden in the sum- 
mertime. It would be nice to have a 
fireplace, a room of my own and be 
within a couple of miles of the 
University, on a bus route..." 

And so the quest begins for the 
student looking for an off-campus 
home. Soon one discovers that 
these seemingly simple 

requirements are the luxuries that 
hundreds of people are struggling 
to find. Not only are these and 
simpler requirements hard to 
locate, but once found are 
prohibitively expensive. Many 
people in this area will not recall this 
month of August with fond 
memories as the housing shortage 
and the distorted market prices 
become more apparent. 

So many people are scrambling 
around the housing office en- 
countering hassle after hassle and 
harboring ever more magnified 
fears as the school year approaches 
and ever more of their hopeful, 
almost desperate inquiries are met 
with "sorry, the room is already 
rented." The trouble seems unfair. 
How is the new student to realize 
beforehand that the market could 
be so incredibly bleak? 

This year, more people than ever 
are looking for places to live off- 
campus, which do not exist. They 
are the victims of a poorly planned 
and burgeoning University that 
never took the responsibility to 
assure the existence of adequate 
housing for its clientele. Once again 

this year the University is over- 
enrolled and has a shortage of on- 
campus housing. 

1 he administration is meeting 
this situation with a two phased 
battle plan: 1) suspend as many 
students as possible with the new 
"get tough" tactic of reinstituting 
the "F" in cumulative averages; 
and 2) push as many people as 
possible onto the off-campus 
housing market for which the 
University takes no genuine 

What is being done to change 
the situation so that others will not 
face this situation in the future? 
Almost nothing. The only 
respectable activity is being carried 
out by the Tenants Association, 
which is pressing for rent control in 
University and non-University 
housing. It is a crime to take part in 
the poor excuse for "free en- 
terprise" that the slum lords of 
Amherst enjoy. It is by no means 
free enterprise being forced to pay 
unrealistically high prices for rat's 
nests which would be condemned 
in most localities in this state. The 
tenant, should (s)he ever find a 
place to live, has little choice in the 
matter - take what you can get or 
do not bother trying to attend the 

Many know and share the 
struggle of those searching for 
housing. Be advised that the 
situation will deteriorate even 
further in the next couple of weeks. 
For the author, I copped out and 
took an apartment in a complex, 
not perfection, but home. 

Define clerical 

li's a shame that something as enjoyable as sports 
can't be separated from international problems. The 
Olympic Games and other international events should 
be used to show that all people can get along, no 
matter what race, creed, or color they are.

A smallpox epidemic has broken 
out at the Lord Jeffery Inn in 
Amherst, killing almost all the 
guests and employes. Public health 
officials say that they have found 
traces of the disease in the Inn's 
blankets, ar.d they added that how 
the blankets became contaminated 
is still a mystery. The only possible 
explanation is that Lord Jeffery 
Amherst, an early practitioner of 
biological warfare, has risen from 
the grave and is up to his old tricks 

In the 1700's, as part of his ethnic 
purity program, he gave blankets 
deliberately contaminated with

will happen is that every telephone 
in the United States will become a 
WATS (Wide Area Telecom- 
munications Service) line, and yet 
the people will pay no more than 
the monthly service charge tax). 
The theory behind this action is that 
once people experience the 
wonderful WATS lines, they will 
demand to keep their WATS lines 
once the telephone company 
catches on to what the 
revolutionaries are doing and 
resumes charging the people for 
long distance calls. The group's

When one classifies an error as being 'clerical', I often think of a small 
oversight of an amount of money usually on a financial statement. In a 
recent memorandum to President Wood, Chancellor Randolph Bromery 
classified a $472,000 overstatement of revenue as a 'clerical' error. This 
error, originating in the Campus Center Bond Prospectus released by the 
University Treasurer's Office and the University of Massachusetts Building 
Authority, is far beyond the definition of 'clerical'. 

I have a deep concern with the capabilities of any financial manager 
responsible for such an oversight. What kind of financial managers do we 
have at this University that include an amount of $472,000 in two places on 
revenue schedules to create such an over-statement? 

Presently, the commitment of various University funds totaling $472,000 
is before the Trustees for approval to insure protection for Building 
Authority Bondholders. This proposed allocation commits money from 
University Trust Fund Interest: Rental (Campus funds); and a loan from the 
Student Health Services Trust Fund. 

We have a computerized accounting system here at the University, and 
this 'clerical' error leads me to believe that someone does not know how to 
read the computer reports, or the reports are being incorrectly carried 

It is apparent that the potential for extremely large errors exists, as we 
have just experienced one amounting to $472,000. With an error of this size 
occurring in the Campus Center Bond Prospectus, we must direct our 
concern toward the other 2000-3000 other Trust Funds presently in 
operation. How many other trust funds will soon be found to be overstated 
or understated? How will these 'clerical' errors affect the students and 
University as well? 

I am glad that my accounting professors here at UMass have instilled 
strong notions in my mind of including one item on a revenue statement 
only one time. In the School of Business, we are taught to be prepared for 
the business world outside of the University, but they have not yet taught 
us how to classify an error of almost a half million dollars as 'clericar.

One lump sum 

A new face. 

It's great to get a look at the 
maternity ward of Vice- 
Chancellor's offices opening in 
Whitmore. No less than three 
positions are open for the offices, 
under direct command of Chan- 
cellor Bromery. Dr. Gage has 
resigned, the Provost Search is 
under way, and the new position of 
Finance Administration is also 
currently in search of a person. 
Three new people in one lump sum. 

How will thisaffecJ the students? 
Good question. 

Right now students are trying to 
gain some control over the in- 
stitutions which govern them. 
Student Input, so the cliche goes. 
But how much can you beat on a 
dead horse if he just won't get up? 
No ride. Student decisions. When 
are they made? Well, you can 
decide what type of beer you want 
at the Blue Wall, but not the room 

you live in unless you're married, a 
veteran, or a person living at home, 
commuting. The age limit of 
twenty-one is defunct. 

Who is going to listen to us now, 
if student voices in the past have 
trailed off into the spiriling 
whirlwind of the library? 

Maybe there will be a woman or 
two appointed to the new jobs. 
That would be half-decent. Anyone 
who has felt the oppression must 
be sympathetic to other oppressed 
people, I hope. Then maybe our 
appeals for sanity in education, 
students affairs, reasonable 
housing and variety foods in the 
mass consumption institutions will 
not be just a draft on the backs of 
Whitmore. Maybe they will let in a 
fresh breeze of communication 
with the clients they serve. Maybe I 
should go back to my other dream.*

Is it justice , or just us? 


As we move closer to the election of our new 
President, and Vice President, as well as other political 
officials across America, and continue to engage in a 
year long celebration of our country's two hundredth 
birthday, the cry of the poor and oppressed people 
who are suffering in America today becomes even 
more distinct. Despite America's continued claims of 
being the "Land of the Free" with "Liberty and 
Justice for all", one has to examine more closely 
America's practices and not just what we "preach". 

The Constitution of the U.S. guarantees all citizens; 
regardless of race, creed or color, certain unalienable 
rights. The appalling contradiction to these rights is 
the present day judicial system. 

From small claims court right up to Superior court 
the American judicial system has become one of the 
most biased, bigoted and racist methods of 
eliminating citizens who choose to exercise their 
rights here on the planet. Today, in 1976, it is common 
knowledge that the U.S. government commits crimes 
against its own people. Even before the terrifying 
Nixon-Watergate disclosures, agencies like the FBI, 
CIA and the L.E.A.A. were involved in wiretaps, 
conspiracies, assassination plots and spying on 
private citi7ftnf; 

Here at the University of Massachusetts, the 
Craemen Gethers - Earl Brown case is a classic 
among American cases of injustice. Two UMass 
students, currently incarcerated in what appears to be 
a clear cut case of mistaken identity, can only hope for 
publicity. Ask either of these students. They'll tell you 
about our "alienable" rights. "It seems that the only 
way to free political prisoners (citizens incarcerated 
because of their insistence on the use of rights 
guaranteed by the U.S. constitution) is to heavily 
publicize the case in hopes of support from citizens all 
over the country. This is how Angela Davis, JoAnn 
Little, Huey P. Newton, Bobby Seale, Rubin 
(Hurricane) Carter and a host of others obtained their 

The cases of Rev. Ben Chavis, Dr. Jim Grant and

Synchronizing our existence 

Sunday's flood in Colorado 
brings home again the reality that 
Nature still has the upper hand. 
More than 60 persons died. Their 
only guilt was that they were there, 
at that particular hour in eternity. A 
regrettable situation yes; avoidable, 
no. Science will always attempt to 
predict the weather, earthquakes, 
and volcanos; and to some degree 
scientists will succeed. But nature 
will prevail. Scientists will never 
predict disasters. 

PersoTikind is a part of nature 
though. As long as we are around 
we will build houses, till the land, 
create beauty in the arts, travel and 
engage in vanities of all sorts. But it 
seems that the human race 
sometimes forgets that it is part of 
nature, not better than nature. 

We have learned to make the 
land produce plenty — we are well 
fed. Must we be fat? That steak on 
the barbeque - cattle car produce 
steak eating only grass. Why was 
more protein fed to the cow that 
the steak came from, than there is 
in that steak after it is cooked? Or 
vanity may require the deodorant in 
that spray can. The fluorocarbons 
may or may not destroy the ozone 
layer — but why do we buy the can 
that itself took twice as much 
energy and resources to produce as 

a roll-on container? 

Returnable bottles are as easy to 
carry to the store as non- 
returnables are to carry to the 
garbage. Do you enjoy carrying out 
the garbage? 

Reading by candlelight is bad for 
your eyes. But so is the air pollution 
from the oil-burning power plant 
that lights the 200 watts of lights 
that are on in every room in your 

Nature never intended man to 
live frugally in misery and pain — 
only in harmony. Some would say I 

advocate living a simple lifestyle, I 
call it simply living a lifestyle, rather 
than living an artificial creation of 
personkind's meglomania. Her- 
bicides, cancer, and nuclear 
reactors are going to be around for 
quite a while unless our living habits 
change. Nature will continue to 
send an occasional disaster to 
remind us that we are just part of 
the whole. And if we can syn- 
chronize our existence with the 
pulse of that whole, those disasters 
will remain occasional.

Mud, fun, sun, song: 
Jazz Vermont style 

August 4, 1976 

By John Silletto 

The' rain showed no signs of 
subsiding Sunday morning as we 
made the three and a half hour 
drive fronn Amherst to Waitsfield, 
V ermont for the second day of the 
Vermont Jazz Festival. 

The rain only began to let up 
dround noon as we climbed the 
muddy road to the Glen Ellen Ski 
Area to join more than & 000 others 
'o await the start of the concert. 

It would be more than two hours 
before the already hour late concert 
would begin. 

But the spirits of the crowd were 
high, and the gravel in the Green 
Mountain soil kept the mud at a 
minimum. Before 2:30 the sun was 
out; the beer price had dropped 
from 75 cents to 50 cents; and the 
music was alive on the stage. 

The Festival had opened on 
Saturday with Dave Brubeck, 
Buddy Rich, Maynard Ferguson 

and the Bill Evo»-;s rno The weather 
wasnt ihe best, but comments

able to make the f^'stiva! the yearly

George Benson took the stage as 
the sun set over the mountain. He 
brought th*- loo rnellowed-out

Sunday's performance opened 
yvith the Tim McLoon sextet. Their 
"Ustenable" music, especially their 
rendition of 'Norwegian Wood", 
provided an excellent lead in to the 
Chuck Mangione Quartet.

bill will not be put into a triple. 

Campbell is confident that the 
"'riple situation ' will not occur 
again because of a "new system", 
he said. Every student who pays the 
residence hall bill by August 15 is 
guaranteed a room, and students 
paying too late will receive refunds 
instead of rooms, he said. The only 
recourse for these students, he 
said, is to live r'f campus. 

Some students at the University 
will receive the new need-based 
tuition waivers. The waivers are not 
available to out-of-state students, 
according to Financial Aid Diredtor 
Richard A. Dent. 

"We rhink of the tuition waivers 
as aid of last resort for three 
populations of students who will be 
hard-hit by the tuition increases 
scheduled to go into effect in the 
fall," he said. These student 
populations are, according to Dent, 
Independent and Married students' 
middle income and middle-ability 
students who are not eligible for 

grants, and graduate students, who 
up until now have been eligible for 
loans and jobs only. Priority will go 
to students who have run up a large 
loan bill, Dent said. 

About 600 students will receive 
the waivers, which will range from 
$100 to a maximum of $345 or $494. 
Ttiough the Board of Trustees 
has approved the increasing tuition 
hikes, it was reported that the 
Board will reconsider the increases 
early next year. It will reconsider the 
tuition wa.ver program at that. 

Dent said he expects that a 
critical factor in the Board's review 
of tuition increases and waivers will 
be Congressional action. 

"Right now", he said, "Congress 
is still debating on the future of 
financial aid. There are about a half- 
dozen theories in Congress about 
federal aid to students. We just 
don't know what will happen to the 
College work-study program or 
student loans." 

No special application is 
necessary for the tuition waivers. 
Dent said the students who have 
already applied for financial aid this 
year will automatically be con- 
sidered for waivers. 

Food stamps 

The Food Stamp Office, 
located in Munson Hall on the 
UMass campus will remain 
closed throughout the summer 
and will resume operations on 
Sept. 1. 

In order for students to 
qualify to receive food stamps, 
'hey must be a resident of 

Should the student still be 
claimed as a dependent by his 
or her parents, the parents must 
qualify for food stamps and the 
student's adjusted net income 
must not exceed $1500. 

Student loans are taken^ into 
account when figuring out 
estimated incoming resources. 

Not eligible for food stamps 
are foreign students on visas. 

Anyone interested in ob- 
taining Food Stamps in this 
area should go to the Nor- 
thampton Welfare Office, 
which can be found at 355 
Bridge Street in Northampton. 
The number to call is 586-3600.

One would hardly think that an 
outdoor tent could be an ap- 
propriate place for the classic 
comedy "Arsenic and Old Lace." 
Yet the atmosphere inside the 
canvas was intimate and homey, 
the set being a cozy little sitting 
room decorated to suit the tastes of 
two elderly spinster sisters. "Ar- 
senic and Old Lace", a play by 
Joseph Kesselring, played to a 
capacity crowd last week at the 
tent on the green at Mount Holyoke 

The actors were convincing 
enough to keep the belly-aching 
laughter going at a continuous 
pace. Ellen Kennedy, who played 
Abby Brewster was bright-eyed, 
white haired and innocently 
mischievous, but she was a bit 
youthful looking and strained her 
part as to draw attention to her 
actual age. 

Vicki Casarett as Martha 
Brewster played a better older 
sister, for she was spry, but not in a 
college-age way. Tom McCabe as 
Teddy was perfect as the booming- 
voiced disillusioned nephew. 

His one word commands and 

exclamations, "Charge'.', and 

'Bully" guaranteed instant 

laughter. Jaltk Neary played an 

excellent confused Mortimer. 

His facial expression, when faced 

with an unbelievable truth, were 
worth a million words. Phillip ^ 
Kilbourne as Jonny, played a good 
monstrous nephew. 

The audience soon learns by 
laughter that appearances can be 
very deceiving. The Brewster 
sisters, in their comfortable and 
quiet surroundings, murder lonely 
old men and bury them in their 

The Brewster^ live- in nephew, 
Teddy, believes he is Theodore 
Roosevelt right down to the 
spectacles, bugle and sword. Not 
only does he think that the stairs 
are San Juan Hill, he is also con- 
vinced that he's digging the 
Panama Canal in the basement. 

These ditches are artfully used by 
the old women as graves for their 
victims. Teddy's brother Mortimer 
seems to be the sane one in the 
family. When he discovers that his 
gentle aunts have a body in their 
window seat and eleven more 
buried in the basement, he is clearly 

"There's a dead body in the 
window seat! " he cries out. The 
sisters answer calmly while setting 
the table, "Yes dear, we know". In 
response to Mortimer's objections 
and bewilderment, the women are 
taken aback and look truly hurt. 

"We don't stop you from things 
'hat you want to do." The plot 

becomes even stranger when the 
third Brewster brother, Jonathan, 
and his accomplice, Dr. Einstein, 
the "plastic surgeon", are in- 
troduced. Jonny is the black sheep 
of the family and has a face that 
resembles Frankenstein, created for 
him by his own private doctor to 
escape 12 murder charges in 
various states. 

The play ends with every 
Brewster getting his or her just 
dessert. Jonny is finally caught by 
the police, and Mortimer discovers 
that he was the illegitimate child of 
a cook. He had been led to believe 
that "insanity runs in my family. It 
practically gallops," and so to this 
new piece of information he lets go 
a joyous shout, "I'm not a 
Brewster, I'm a bastard!" Teddy, 
Abby, and Martha Brewster 
voluntarily commit themselves to 
the Happydale Institution, but this 
happy-ever-after ending is twisted 
at the play's closing when, with 
eyes twinkling, the Brewster sisters 
entice the Mr. Witherspoon of 
Happydale with their spiked 
elderberry wine. 

All in all, the characters were well 
portrayed, the costumes well 
designed, the scenery nicely set 
and the dialoge a gem. To sum it all 
up, 'Arsenic and Old Lace" is really 
a killer.

Martha Brewster (Vicki Casarett, right) offer up their

Webster Lewi^ Band has

fo Summer Activities director

with "tremendous receptions" 
when the last appeared at 

The concert, sponsored by

The idea of black classical music 
has become a new concept and the 
name Unity Ensemble has con- 
tributed much to its reality. These 
gentlemen are no strangers to the 
area and it is much to their credit to 
have worked with some of the best. 

Chris Henderson is one (drums 
and percussion) along with multi- 
reed man Sulaiman Hakim, both of 
whom have recorded countless 
times. They will pay a visit to the 
valley this coming weekend. They 
will be at the Steak Out August 5- 
8, with sets starting at 9 p.m. 

Also, bassis Avery Sharp, 
currently with Sunlight 'N Shade, 
and Cy Davis with the Freddie 
Hubbard quintet (congos and 
percussion) will spice the already 
star studded lineup. In a time when 
progressive music fights for identity 
there are those who have taken a 
firm hold on the situation and have 
worked diligently so that the entire 
realm - all 360 degrees of the 
music — can be experienced. Many 
are called but few are chosen. 
Henderson and Hakim have 
managed to elevate above the 
stagnation of commercialism and to 

bring about new ideas of complete 
communication just as growth, 
wisdom, and understanding are of 
extreme importance. The 
eloquence, the forcefulness of the 
Unity Ensemble will continue to

will be the ones to lift us from this

Discrimination charged 

By Mitch Simpson 

A complaint has been filed with a 
federal agency charging that 
UMass has discriminated against 
George P. Faddoul because of his 
Arab ancestry. 

The complaint was filed with the 
Contract Compliance Division of 
the Department of Health, 
Education and Welfare's Office of 
Civil Rights. 

The complaint, brought by Elaine 
C. Hagopian, president of the Arab- 
American University Graduates and 
Richard C. Shedyso, past president 
of the National Associatiori of Arab 
Americans, says that the University 

discriminated against the Arab 
ethnic group and asked that the 
federal government suspend 
disbursement of federal funds to 
the University. 

Faddoul was considered for the 
position of head of the Suburban 
Experiment Station in Waltham of 
the University's college of Food and 
Natural Resources. He was not 
appointed, however. 

Hagopian and Shedyso charge 
that the Arab ethnic group is not 
represented in administrative 
academic positions at the 
University, and that goes against 
the University's affirmative action 

Chris Henderson (Drums and Percussion) and 
Sulaiman Hakim (reeds), both UMass students, are 
leaders of Unity Ensemble. They say the ensemble 
searches for 'unification of the universe in every 
form." (Photos by Ed Cohen). ^

Travelin the rivers-it ain't easy by canoe 

Duke Simoneau is a UMass 
student canoeing across the United 
States on an internship. He and 
Stan Sroka from Chicopee Falls, 
left West Springfield on May 26 and 
plan to reach Portland, Oregon in 
the summer of 1977. Exerpts from 
articles Simoneau has written 
throughout the trip follow. 

How do you prepare for a 15 
month, cross-country canoe trip? 
First priority is a route. Stan 
Sroka spent two years of checking 
maps and sources (government 

Stan Sroka ^akes a break, 
as rowing can get to be a 
hard chore, he says (Photo 
by Duke Simoneau). 

agencies, canoe clubs), to get a 
reasonably safe series of rivers to 

Clothing and packs are the next 
concerns. All clothing has to be 
loose, because tight clothes chafe 
when wet. Long undent/ear and a 
good winter jacket for the winter 
nrtonihs take up the majority of the 
canoes "closet space". Wool 
clothes tend to be warmest, even 
when wet. Wool sweaters and 
pants can mean the difference 
between cold and comfortable. A 
pair of shorts and a couple T-shirts 
complete the wardrobe. 

One important thing about 
clothing - it's better to have a few 
layers of lighter clothing than one 
heavy layer. The layering catches 
body warmth and holds it better. 

The tent is a large, two-man, 
year-round type. For the warm dry 
nights, a nylon web backpacker's 
hammock to sling between a pair of 
friendly trees is a welcome change. 

Eating is also high on the list of 
"things to do" on any trip. It is 
efficient to carry one to two weeks 
supplies at a time, depending on 
how close one is to civilization. 
Special freeze-dried camping food 
IS convenient on a portage (walking 
trip) but expensive. Besides, there 
aren't many long portages. It is 
necessary to time oneself so one 
doesn't have a lot of canned goods 
when expecting to walk. 

H igh protein snacks are good and 
can be made cheaply. Gorp is one 
of the best. It's usually a com- 
bination of many types of nuts, 
with a little dried fruit tossed in for 
flavor. "Natural" cereals, like 
Granold. make good munchies too. 
Hard candy gives quick energy. 

A couple of good paperback 
books to bring are Roughing It Easy 
by Thomas and The Wild 
FoQd Trail Guide by Alan Hail. 
Thomas has tips on every aspect of 
ramping. Hall's book may well keep 
you from starving if the trip goes al! 
wrong. At the very least, it can vary 
your diet and give you some in- 
season natural food. 

Getting out of New England may 
be the hardest part of the entire 
[Tip. After fighting a strong Con- 

necticut River current and running 
upstream against the white water 
of the Deerfield River, we faced a 
25 mile portage over the Mohawk 

"Joie" (the canoe) came out of 
the water at the junction of the 
Deerfield and Cold Rivers Cold 
River was too dry to even drag the 
canoe through. We pulled out two 
oversized packs and the 17-foot 
craft up to Route 2 (the Mohawk 

We had a limited number of 
alternatives, so we opted to take 
the easy way out. We hitchhiked. 
Amazingly, we and the canoe got a 
ride to the other side of the moun- 

Back at the Hoosick River, it 
seemed like someone had put jets 
on "Joie". Heading with the 
shallow river was much easier. 

We portaged around a 10-foot 
dam, and on the other side, we 
found a grassy bank. It seemed to 
be a perfect campsite, and was 
close to a YMCA, where we 

A hot shower, after a week of 
river baths, was an inexplicable 

After a rainy night in a barn, we 
pushed through the Southwestern 
corner of Vermont and into New 
York the next day. 

The river twists and turns tightly. 
Small but dangerous whirlpools dot 
every turn. Trees lie stacked up 
along the river banks as silent 
testimony to higher and faster 

The river got cleaner as we got 
out of Massachusetts. Wildlife and 
birds became more numerous. 
Muskrats, hawks, owls and various 
other birds and animals checked us> 
out curiously. 

We slid from the Hoosick River 
into the deep, fast and dirty Hudson 
late in the afternoon. 

A lock in the Champlain Canal (as 
the upper Hudson is known) 
greeted us just before Mechanic- 
ville. Locks are impressive struc- 
tures. Basically, they are concrete 
"Us" with a steel gate on either 
end, designed to raise or lower a 
vessel around a dam or rapids. The 
gates in a lock are in two 22-foot 
sections. A one-foot horizontal slice 
from these doors weighs one ton. 
The gates ranger in height, 
depending on the size of the lift- 
drop. The Champlain and Barge 
Canals were built in the beginning 
of the century, utilizing a lot of 
World War I scrap metal. There has 
been almost no replacement of 
parts on the locks, just continued 

We weren't certain that a 17-foot 
canoe would be allowed in the 
locks. If not, we had roughly 38 
extra portages to make crossing 
New York. The Lockmaster assured 
us that we'd be allowed through. 
The Barge Canal was as oily as 
the Hudson. Many dead fish floated 
into the locks with us. The lock- 
master told us they were herring, 
dead after spawning. "Sometimes 
they come through here so thick 
that we have to lock 'em through," 
he said. 

An 11-mile stretch of flat water 
separated locks six and seven. 
Moving at three mph, 83 per cent 
humidity and 90 degrees is not 

The next few days we passed 
through scenic upstate New York 
at a 25-mile a day pace. Muskrats, 
woodchucks, deer, cows and fish 
alternately checked us out and ran 
from us. Barge traffic was much 
lighter than expected. One of the 
lockmasters explained that com- 
mercial traffic on the Canal had 
dropped considerably since a pipe- 
line from Texas to Utica, New York 
was laid for petroleum products

paddled 1,000 miles spend a four

* Canoe trip 

going white-water rafting. 

For rougt^lv $20. any one of five 
different rental firms will provide 
you with guides, rafts, and lunch 
for a day of "chills, thrills and spills 

The Vouch, as it's known locally, 
is a wild river in Southwestern 
Pennsylvania that winds through 
Ohiopyle State Park. The groups on 
the trip we took (with a group 
known as Wilderness Voyagers) 
consisted of four man rafts. About 
20 rafts followed five guides, some 
in rafts and some in kayaks. 

It was relatively easy to stay dry 
throughout the trip until we shot 
the falls of the Ohiopyle River back- 

There isn't a lot of difference 
between shooting rapids forwards 
or backwards in a raft, except when 
the weight isn't evenly distributed. 
Head over heels was the route we 

Fort Necessity, where George 
Washington first distinguished 
himself in the French and Indian 
Wars, is here. The Fort Necessity 
National Battleground has rebuilt 
the fort, and runs tours and a 
museum at the site. 

We also explored Laurel Caverns. 
This is the only catacomb type cave 

in the US. Instead of the usual 
"American" style cave, high ceiling 
with stalagmites and stalagtites, a 
catacomb is a series of low rooms 
and hallways. The management of 
Laurel Caverns has hidden 17 boxes 
in the unlit "exploratory" portion of 
the cave with checks of varying 
amounts in them. 

Only one of the two $100 boxes 
has been found. The others, one 
$100, two 50's, several 20's and 
10's, and two antique Spanish 
swords, are all buried in shallow 
sand in "easy and not dangerous" 
places. The management will 
announce the locations of all 
undiscovered treasure on 
December 1 of this year, according 
to cavern officials. 

We didn't have flashlights and 
shovels or we would have spent the 
entire day spelunking (cave 
walking). The idea behind the 
treasure hunt is to commemorate 
the Kirk gang, who allegedly hid in 
the cave. 

After a couple more days of 
writing and errands, we pushed off, 
in the rain, into the Ohio River. 

Simeneau and Sroka are still on 
the Ohio, and one week ahead of 
time, as of last contact.

People's Market emphasizes 
community responsibility 

By Howie Streim 

In February, 1973, the People's 
Market was set up at UMass as an 
alternative cooperative system to 
the traditional market. 

According to its founders, "The 
People's Market stands for social 
justice and honest enterprise, and 
vehemently opposes corporate 
capitalism and profiteering." 

They went on to say, "com- 
munity control is and must be the 
key to the organization of the 
People's Market. The consumer is 
not viewed as an outsider or 
"someone who shouldn't under- 
stand or know how the market is or 
should be run simply because 
they're not from the market." 

Membership in the co-op is open 
to everyone. Volunteers are 
required to work a certain number 
of hours each month, and in return 
they receive a price reduction on 
goods purchased. 

There is little interest at the 
People's Market in fostering the 
profit making motive. All proceeds 
are pumped back into the Market 
for maintenance and development. 
The co-op system operates by 
buying food in bulk, and the Market 
follows this criteria. It deviates 
somewhat from the system in that 
it does allow total membership (the 
entire University community is a 
member) because it was student 
fees that initially started the market. 
Unlike some co-ops where 
everyone holds a vote in policy 
decisions, only the market workers 
have a vote. But workers stressed 
that anyone who goes to a few 
meetings and shows interest will be 
allowed to vote. 

The market operates at cost, so 
there is little or no surplus. The 
market is not presently initiating 
educational activities, although 
"somethino is beinq planned for t'.ie 

fall," according to one Markei 
worker. The Market is part of the 
New England Food Cooperative 
Organization and works closely 
with the Amherst and Belchertown 
food co-ops. 

The Market is run by a coor- 
dinator who works about 30 hours 
weekly. The workers share 
responsibilities and duties, and 
work 10 hours a week and then 
"volunteer" about five more. This 
time, which the workers schedule 
themselves, enables the workers to 
do what they want to see done 
around the Market, and learn the 
responsibilities of running the 

The workers learn ordering and 
management, and concentrate on a 
certain stock. 

Another different thing about the 
market is that there is no real 
"boss," no one who has the power 
to fire an employe. Firing decisions 
are made by the staff at staff 

Most workers believe this opens 
wide space for creative expression 
and decision-making not to be 
found in a bureaucratically 
structured industry. 

The People's Market has a 
philosophy, and asserts it "quietly 
but effectively," according to a 
worker. The Market supported Ox 
Fam America, a day of fast to raise 
the issue of world hunger. It also 
removed and boycotted light and 
chunk light tuna in response to the 
killing of dolphins to catch tuna. 
The Market closed for two days in 
support of the State Workers strike 
earlier this summer, despite some 

customer pressure not to do so and 
the economic loss to the Market 

The decision to close was a 
collective one. Some workers said 
their close ties with state workers 
gave them a "responsibility of 

It seems that the communal spirit 
in the Market's charter has fallen a 
bit short of the goal; A lack of 
volunteers was cited as a major 
reason for this condition. Perhaps 
the educational program slated to 
begin in the fall will draw more 
attention to the Market, which in 
turn could draw more support. 

For over three years, the Market 
has worked, most think suc- 
cessfully, to provide food at decent 
prices while maintaining individual 

The problem remains, however, 
to increase community par- 
ticipation so ihat the Market can 
grow and be refreshed with new 
and creative energies.

Record Review 

Jonathan Richman--the man can do no wrong 

Phil AAil<-tai^ n i«. ^^ 

By Phil Mi/stein 

If you listen to his lyrics, 
Jonathan Richman comes across 
as very suburban, very middle- 
class, socially arrow-straight, and 
rather high-schoolish. All things 
that I vehemently hate. So why is 
Jonathan my favorite musical 

For this review to be in the right 
perspective you should know that 
with me, Jonathan Richman can do 
no wrong. Now there are others 
that have done no wrong, but onl> 
Jonathan doesn't even have the 
potential to fail. This is, of course, 
only my opinion. 

Jonathan, with the original 
Modern Lovers, were the Next Big 
Thing several years back, out of 
Boston you may recall, and in 71 
went into the studio with John Cale 
who was an original Velvet Un- 
derground person to do a demo for 
Warners. After the sessions, 
though, the group disbanded for 
some reason and all we had to go 
on until earlier this year was legend. 
You know the comic strip Henry? 
You know why he can't talk? Cause 
he ain't got no mouth. Well neither 
does Jonathan, but he's overcome 
that somewhat. He talks through 
his nose. And any noseologist 
worth his snot will iail ya that 
through your nose you can only 
make one note. This is the reason 
that Jonathan sounds a) so nasal 
and b) singb and talks in such a 

So this Baltimore lawyer living in 
Berkeley managing a band called 
Earthquake named Matthew King 
Kaufman somehow gets hold of si> 
of the Cale derno tracks plus three 
more tracks and puts them together 
and gives us The ModerrvLovers Ip 
on the Home of The Hits label, a 
spinoff of his own Beserkley 

Records. And you can only get it by 
mail and the critics loved it, and 
they had good reason, cause it's 

What Jonathan does best lyric- 
wise is about the same thing that 
Sparks does so well - only dif- 
ferently. That's sing about down- 
to-earth day-to-day things that 
other people's lyrics ignore as trite 
but instead are what "make us 
tick. " Sparks songs are about such 
things as sneezing and the benefits 
of pineapples. Jonathan sings 
about the Stop and Shop and 
getting out of the hospital. 

The first album was also very 
much concerned with love and girls 
and sex (all nearly synonymous 
anyway). Girl Friend (G-l-R-L-F-R- 
E-N), Someone I Care About, 
Hospital, She Cracked, Astral 
Plane, Pablo Picasso. Six out of the 
nine songs are concerned in some 
way with girls but usually in a much 
different and original way than 
most silly love songs. Cale the 
producer thought enough of the 
Pablo Picasso (the song) to record 
it for himself. 

The first record was also very 

concerned with modernism and 

antiquity. Roadrunner, Old World, 

and Modern World, all deal with 

those subjects, and the latter two 

songs even give us a paradoxical 

confession of love for both the 

tnodern and old worlds. Think 

about the name of the group too. 

Finally, he's also very concerned 

and very m love with New England, 

especially Mass. and Boston in 

particular. These three: girls, 

•odernism antiquity, and New 

England are really the only themes 

of the album. 

And man Jonathan is funny too. 
Like I can't listen to my comedy 
records no more after maybe five 

times but every time I play JR I 
crack up. (In fact if you listen 
carefully to the new one, so does he 
a few times.) But since this isn't 
supposed to be a review of the first 
album, I'll only give you one 
example of his tongue-in-cheek 
(oral not rectal) humour. ("Men try 
and pick up girls and get called an 
asshole but this never happened to 
Pablo Picasso he's walk down the 
street women could not resist to 
stare Pablo Picasso was never 
called an asshole not like You. 
Women would turn the color of an 
avacado when he'd drive down the 
street in his Eldorado..."). 

So the group breaks up and 
Jonathan is in Berkeley going solo 
so Kaufman puts the four artists he 
has on his label together on a 
much-acclaimed sampler called 
ironically Beserkely Chartbusters. 
■ Jonathan has four tracks in another 
better version of Road Runner; an 
old paean to rock and roll called It 
Will Stand; another of his brand of 
"love song" The New Teller 
("everybody in the bank line know 
that I got a crush on the new 
teller ); and Government Center 
where he sings about his band 
going down there and playing for 
the secretaries. 

At that point we had heard 13 
tracks, twelve different songs, and 
1 1 of them by Jonathan. And every 
one a masterpiece. (It may seem 
that the Modern Lovers preceded 
Chartbusters but only put it that 
way cause that's the order I bought 

JR puts together a new Modern 
Lovers, retaining only his original 
drummer. Instead of a keyboardist 
he adds a lead guitarist relegating 
himself to rhythm guitar. The loss 
of the keyboards has eliminated 
those beautiful organ mood-feels 

and solo riffs on no. 1. 

So just about a month ago I see 
an ad for the new record in Circus 
magazine. And every day since 
then I've called four record stores 
trying to find this record. So fina/fy 
a month later it arrives and I bring it 
home and know already I'm gonna 
like it and I put it on and I do. I love 

The new one is entitled Jonathan 
Richman and the Modern Lovers (I 
wish his Ip titles were as inventive 
as his song titles.) JR's sense of 
humor turns a little. ..bazaar. 
Sample titles - Here Come The 
Martian Martians, Hey There Little 
Insect, Abominable Snowman In 
The Market. Also Rockin' Shopping 
Center and Lonely Financial Zone, 
which incidentally features a great 
paradox between music and lyrics. 
His stuff is still rather suburban, 
maybe even more so. It ain't all 
quite so down-to-earth no more as 
you can tell by some of the titles, 
but still more so than most other 
people, and he relegates his love of 
New England to just one song. New 
England. On several songs he talks 
a little before the song starts, and 
those intros just make me piss in 
my jeans. His version of Chuck 
Berry's Back In The USA is great 
and another example of his latent 
conservatism. I woulc like to hear 
his politics. 

His speaking voice, unless it's 
affected, sounds just like his 
singing voice, which hasn't 
changed since no. 1. (The credit 
says "Jonathan Richman 'sings' ".) 
And the last cut on the record is 
Amazing Grace, which is of course 
the last song we'd ever expect him 
to do. Like John Lennon doing 
Psalm 23. 

The remaining 'hree songs on the 
alburn are not bad, not incredible, 

they just don't stand out too much 
especially compared to the other 
insanities on this album. 
Springtime, kinda acoustic, and Hi 
Dear are overshadowed but still 
represent a slightly different but still 
same ol' Jonathan Richman. Finally 
we have Important in Your Life, 
which is the most normal thing he's 
ever done. Well any record that 
even comes close to this one's 8 
wins-zero losses-3 ties record has 
gotta be as good as this one, but 
there aren't many others that eve 
come close. 

It now comes to the point where I 
must decide which is better — no. 1 
(with which I will lump his four 
Chartbusters tracks) or no. 2. Well, 
I already said no. 1 gave us 13 
masterpiece tracks. And I already 
said no. 2 gave us only eight. So I 
guess that answers it. A slight 
victory, no downhill slide to worry 
about or nothing. After all, It was 
five years between recordings. 
Most other guys might just 
completely turn to shit in five years. 
Look at Harrison or McCartney or 
even the Stones. And neither of 
them or anyone else will ever come 
close to his 21-0-3 record. JR's 
fame and popularity and money are 
starting to come around, thanks to 
several critics and buyers. And I 
have good word that the new one 
will sell very well. Maybe he'll be 

Jonathan Richman air/t quite for 
everyone but I think from my 
description you can tell if he's for 
you. If he is I would first recom- 
mend no. 1, but you might a wanna 
try no. 2 first cause it's much more 
accessible. The Modern Lovers 
($4.49) and Chartbusters ($5.49) are 
both available from Beserkley 
Records P.O. Box 589-B. Beserkley, 
CA, 94701.

A warning from Hurricane Belle 

AUGUST n, 1976 


Commercial bank proposed for CC 

By Jean Conley 

There was a rumor that isn't a 
rumor any more. One issue in the 
Campus Center reallocation of 
space that has been ignored, 
avoided, denied, and talked around, 
has finally come to light. That issue 
is a bank. 

There exists the possibility of a 
commercial bank in the Campus 
Center. Chancellor Randolph W. 
Bromery and University Budget 
Director Warren Guiko endorse it. 
The Campus Center Board of 
Governors (BOG) oppose it. 

The idea of a commercial bank in 
the Campus Center started a year 
and a half ago. Bids were sent out 
to area banks and the First National 
Bank of Amherst proved most 
financially beneficial to the 
University. The space the bank 
would occupy, at that time, was the 
Colonial Lounge in the Student 
Union. First National Bank was 
willing to pay $24,000 rent for the 
first year of rental space. But things 
have changed since then, and the 
UMass Student Federal Credit 
Union now occupies that space. 
The space in question now is the 
Reading Room of the Reading 
Room-Music Library across from 
the Bluewall. Prime space, ac- 
cording to BOG member Kristin 
McCormack. The BOG approved 
the idea of a commercial bank a 
year and a half ago, but it has since 
changed its mind. 

The BOG says that it opposes the 
idea of a commercial bank for 
ideological reasons, and that "if 
that bank gets in there, it will 
become an institution. We won't 
ever be able to get it out" 

BOG members say they are afraid 
the Campus Center will begin to 
look like the bottom floor of a New 
York hotel, because furthermore, 
Campus Center Manager Bud 
Wilkes has suggested that the 
Campus Travel Center be moved 
fr<sm its third ^loor location to the 
Music Library, also across from the 

Wilkes said the Travel Center is in 
dire need of more space, and that it 
will pay for its own renovations, 
except for an outer security door. 
One BOG member said the new 
space allocation would give the 
Travel Center 15 times the space it 
has now. "And they don't need 
that much space," she said. 

Chancellor Bromery says that he 
"doesn't really understand" the 
BOG'S rationale for opposing the 
bank. But according to he and 
GuIko, students lost $102,000 last 
year by not permitting the bank to 
be built. "That's $5 per student on 
the Campus Center fee, GuIko said. 
BOG member Peter DeGregorio 
said the figure "is actually more like 

This conflict arises from the 
confusion of how much money the 
Cashier's Office in the Student 
Union actually loses each year. One 
BOG member said that althouah 

the Cashier's Offices lose a lot of 
money on bad checks, many of the 
checks are traced back, with the 
addition of a $5 charge to the 
student issuing the check. With 
telephone bill commissions and 
such, he said, the Cashier's Office 
almost breaks even. Wilkes, 
however, said the office has lost 
$10,000 since its inception. He said 
the First National Bank would 
absorb the bad check losses if 
permitted into the Campus Center. 

The approximate cost of putting 
the Cashier's Office into the present 
Reading Room would be $15,000, 
which would come from the 
Business Office Accounts. 

Student Federal Credit Union 
President Peter Birnbaum is not 
happy with the idea of a com- 
mercial bank. Chancellor Bromery 
says the bank would enhance the 
credit union's business. Birnbaum 
says it won't. Bromery says with a 
commercial bank, students would 
enjoy the services of a full-service 

bank, such as check cashing. 
Birnbaum said the credit union will 
be ready to handle check cashing 
by the beginning of the semester. 
Manager Wilkes says the bank will 
have no impact on the credit 
union's business. "Only 800 out of 
23,000 students belong to the credit 
union," he said. But workers in the 
credit union think their move from 
the bottom of the Campus Center 
to the Colonial Lounge will increase 
business through visibility and 

Massive space reallocation was 
scheduled for this summer. For 
instance, the Student Center for 
Educational Research (SCER) was 
scheduled to move into the 
Collegian's present location. The 
Collegian and Grassroots were 
scheduled to move to the WATS 
complex on the bottom floor of the 
Campus Center. The ninth floor of 
the Campus Center was to be

Trustees to cover 
prospectus deficit 

By Laurie Wood 

The UMass trustees voted to 
cover a $472,757 deficit found in 
this year's Murray D. Lincoln 
Campus Center's operating funds 
at their meeting held last Wed- 
nesday in Boston. 

The shortage was found when 
the auditing firm of Peat, Man^vick, 
and Mitchell were performing a 
routine check on the books of the 
Campus Center and the School of 
Continuing Education. 

To correct this clerical error 
found in a bond prospectus, 
$200,000 will have to be taken from 
interest on the university trust fund, 
which would include $60,000 from a 
trustee reserve account to be paid 
back within three years; $200,000 
from the Amherst campus 
operating budget, if needed; and 
$72,758 in the form of a short-term 
loan from the Student Health 
Services Trust Fund. 

Although he isn't sure, Bromery 
said that if money is to be taken 
from the Amherst campus, it would 
most likely come from the ad- 
ministration or building and 
grounds accounts. 

The clerical error was made in the 
bond prospectus (which provides 
information to bondholders con- 
cerning the Campus Center's 
revenue and expenses) as Kenneth 
W. Johnson, treasurer was using a 
new method of preparing the cash 
balance included in the document. 

He counted the $473,000 figure 
♦wice, which resulted in the amount 
of cash on hand of the Campus 
Center operations to have been 
overstated by that amount. 

In a Collegian interview, Paul M. 
Cronin, S.G.A. co-president said, 
"because of this error I have to 
question the competence of the 
Treasurer's Office. 

"My information is that he 
(Johnson) knew about the error 
long before this." 

Cronin voted against the 
measure to correct the bond 
prospectus error because he felt 
that since the error occurred in the 
Treasurer's Office, whose members 
are part of President Robert C. 
Wood's staff, it would be unfair to 
take funds from the Amherst 
campus to correct it. 

Appointments were then made 
to the newly formed Hospital 
Management Board (HMB). The 
HMB will serve to advise the 
Chancellors, the President and the 
Board of Trustees of UMass about 
the policies and management of the 
University Hospital. 

Eleven of the seventeen ap- 
pointments to be made wore ap- 
proved at the meeting, with Cronin 
being one of those assigned to the 

According to a memorandum 
from Chairman Joseph P. Healy, 
elected members will come from 
the Hospital Executive Committee, 
the Board of Trustees will appoint 
persons from "outside" the 
University who are from the 
Commonwealth, and serving as ex- 
officio members will be the

the BOG by William F. Field, interim

a monkey wrench into the process, 
and halted everything," according 
to BOG member Malcolm White. 

Plans for the moves did begin 
again under Wilkes, however, but 
another memo from Chancellor 
Bromery on Monday stopped the 
plans for moves once again,

Gage replacement 
causes speculation 

By Scott McKearney 

The resignation of Vice Chan- 
cellor for Student Affairs Robert 
Gage has touched off a wake of 
speculation concerning his 
replacement, both in the short and 
in the long term. Who will replace 
him, and how the selection process 
will occur, are the two issues 
central to the situation. 

Contacted Monday afternoon by 
the Collegian, Chancellor Bromery 
refused to announce the names of 
those being considered for the 
controversial position of Vice 
Chancellor for Student Affairs. 



Paul M. Cronin, co-President of 
the Student Government 
Association also refused to 
comment on the grounds that it 
would be unfair to the candidates, 
and that it might cause friction 
within the University community. 

However, Bromery did suggest 
that the interim replacement for 
Gage would come from within the 
University faculty or administration. 
The Chancellor said that he would 
select someone who knows the 
University well and who is likely to 
cause the least amount of tur- 

Cronin said on Monday that ne 
and co-president Jay Martus had 
begun to confer with Bromery 
concerning his choice and that 
further consultation will occur 
before the selection is made, which 
will be hopefully before the end of 
next week. 

When questioned about the long 
term, permanent selection of Vice 
Chancellor for Student Affairs, 
Bromery stated that he would set 
up a search Committee comprised 
of students, faculty, and ad- 
ministrators. However, he will begin 
this process of selecting a corrt- 
mittee in September, when 
students have returned to campus. 

Bromery expressed an interest in 
convening a search committee 
which would be as representative 
as possible of the entire University. 
community, with representation 
coming from the faculty, the

Student Senates and the Residence 
Halls. He wants, also to be sure to 
appoint some students "from 
outside of the Student Government 
Association" in order to insure a 
more complete cross section of 

Although the Chancellc could 
not be quoted with an exact figure,

Road improvement debate begins 

Heavy lines mark roads designated for Improvement 
under the $1.02 million request submitted by the 
University last fall. 

By Cliff Skibinsky 

Debate has begun in the State 
House on the inclusion of $1.02 
million for improvement of roads on 
the Amherst campus in the $78 
million state capital outlay budget. 

While the case for spending the 
money on UMass roads was 
catapulted to prominence by the 
proposed Northeast Bypass, which 
was recently defeated by the 
Amherst Town Meeting, it would 
be a "bitter disappointment" if the 
funds were not approved because 
of the Bypass defeat, according to 
H.J. Littlefield of the UMass Office 
of Facilities Plarining and 

The road improvements have 
been of low priority in planning past 
budgets, said Littlefield. However, 
the Northeast Bypass, which would 
have closed North Pleasant Street 
to vehicular traffic, would have 
exacerbated severe traffic problems 

already existing on roads marked 
for improvements in the budget 
request. Thus, the University 
requested $1.5 million for im- 
provements last fall, he said. 

As a result of the defeat of the 
Bypass, the request was lowered to 
$1.02 million, and a number of 
improvements specifically related 
to the closing of North Pleasant St. 
were dropped, and replaced by 
other desired improvements, said 

Littlefield expressed concern that 
the request might not go through 
because it would be seen as un- 
necessary in light of the Bypass 

"The closing of North Pleasant 
St. is not an issue," he said. "The 
closing only increased the priority; 
the work is needed anyway." 

The bulk of the money, some 
$600,000, would be used for the 
following (see map): 

- improvement of shoulders on 
Commonwealth Avenue from the 
Physical Plant to Massachusetts 
Avenue, so that at peak traffic 
periods the road could run with two 
lanes each way, and busses could 
pull over without blocking traffic. 

- placement of a traffic light and 
left-hand stacking lanes at the 
intersection of Commonwealth and 
Massachusetts Avenues. 

- placement of a traffic light at 
the intersection of University Drive 
and Massachusetts Avenue. 

The remainder of the funds 
would provide for: 

- improvement of walks and 
steeply graded accesses on East- 
man Lane. 

- alignment of the Governor's 
Drive- Eastman Lane intersectiofi. 

- straightening the "S" curve in 
Governor's Drive from the in- 
tersection to the engineering

THE hlE\J 



Hurricane Belle had been expected to race through 
the state at a rate exceeding the prescribed 55 mph 
limit with the boldness of the "Convoy" of C.W. 
McCall, in total disregard of the forces of order. It had 
been expected to cross the Connecticut line an- 
nouncing "Ready or not, here I come," and to exit 
Massachusetts into Vermont proclaiming "Vini, vidi, 
vici" (I came, I saw, I conquered). 

Instead, though, it came in with a yawn and went 
out on a stretcher. 

Candles were taken out of storage, people checked 
to see if their Coleman lanterns were still in working 
order, jugs were filled with water in case the water 
supply was cut off. Citizens Band radio operators had 
something different to talk about, all the every-now- 
and - then - in - case - something - happens - 
volunteers were prepared, employees of various 
utilities reported to wrok at late night hours, the media 
was psyched up, but in this area, there was little 
action seen. It was an anti-climax, a downright 
disappointment and a relief at the same time. There 
were no major inconveniences and no chance- for

All the women must unite 

"No, I'd rather speak to one of 
the men." How many times I've 
heard that remark I don't know, but 
it appalls me each time I hear it. 
What right has someone to snub 
me and question my knowledge 
simply because I am a woman? 
These rude people have never set 
eyes on me before, wouldn't know 
me from Eve, and therefore have no 
basis to reject my advice. 

It is insulting to me as a sales- 
person, yes, but even more so to 
me as a woman. Just because I am 
a female, people assume I know 
less than the male counterparts at 
my place of employ. Yes, it's a 
frustrating and maddening thing to 
hear, but it's even more 
aggravating to hear it from a 
WOMAN! In this respect, the 
women are the worst offenders 

I've found that some women are 
reluctant to accept the advice of 
another woman. Other women are 

distrustful and sometimes even 
suspicious of the al dity of a sales- 
woman's knowledge. It's very 
discouraging when people won't 
accept my judgement, but when 
those people are other women I am 
considerably more disgusted. 

The basic distrust of females in 
business roles is a longstanding 
sentiment among men and women, 
created by generations of con- 
ditioning, and can't be halted all of 
a sudden. 

This "male chauvinism" prac- 
ticed by women with regard to 
other women is a disheartening 
thing and difficult to combat. In 
order to fight this and all 
chauvinism, people's attitudes have 
to be changed and their minds 
reconditioned. Many people today 
contend that it is the patronizing 
attitude of men that keeps women 
chained to the kitchen and to old 
fashioned ideas of where a 
woman's place is. It is the narrow- 

minded attitudes of women that are 
restricting the progress of women 
in general. I used to think that 
chauvinistic men were the biggest 
hindrance to the progress of 
women. I thought that everything 
would be solved once men 
regarded women as complete 
equals. Well, this isn't completely 
the case. After all, how can society 
expect men to respect women as 
their equals when they see that the 
women themselves won't do 

I hope sincerely that every 
woman that does so will stop 
undermining the progress of 
women in society. We all have to 
work together to make changes, we 
all have to be united in the face of 
struggle. So, pull in the same 
direction. United we stand, divided 
we ...

This fall, the University of Massa- 
chusetts could well be reaching a 
turning point in its history. But 
then, it could well continue the 
degenerating process that has been 
a precedent of the past. 

Last week, I read with rapturous 
delight of the resignation of Robert 
Gage, Vice Chancellor for Student 
Affairs. In this role. Dr. Gage was 
supposed to facilitate broad 
communication between students 
and the University which is in- 
tended to serve them. Since 1973, 
when I first entered the University 
of Massachusetts, I have looked in 
vain for the opportunity to see Dr. 
Gage fulfill this goal. He made a 
better hatchet man than facilitator, 
and he was not even clean at this 
role. Perhaps my memory has failed 
me in this matter, but I do not recall 
any instance in which he openly 
defended or facilitated policies or 
actions which would be in the 
better interest of students. 

Gage v,/as said to have favored 
the improvement of dormitory life, 
yet he supported the transfer of 
Residence Hall Trust Funds used 
for the renovation of dormitories, to 
cover for the mistakes of the Board 
of Trustees who are badly in need 
of renovation themselves. 

He should have stood behind the 
philosophy of state supported 
higher education which provides 
quality education to those unable to 
pay, yet he acknowledged the 
"necessity" of hikes in rent, fees, 
and tuition. 

This University is dangerously 
torn by a lack of communication 
between students and Ad- 
ministration, by political back 
stabbing, and is starved by a lack of 
basic funds to insure quality 
education. As we began to see last 
year, and could all too easily see 
again this year, the lack of com- 
munication between the Ad- 
minist ation and students further 
agitated wour>ds opened by the 

University Trustees, by Bob Wood 
our political opportunist President 
and by a semi-deranged state 
government. This has created a 
serious rift between the com 
ponents of the University and has 
caused the institution of a crippling 
lack of direction in our further 
education and in the quality of the 
University of Massachusetts. 

One cannot expect that careful 
filling of the office of Vice Chan- 
cellor for Student Affairs will bring 
ultimate harmony to life around 
here, nor do I suggest harmony or 
simple placation to. be a goal. I do 
suggest that the " Administration 
and students need to improve the 
quality of their working relationship 
and that real student input is 
needed in choosing a new Vice 

Chancellor Bromery has spoken 
of providing students with the 
majority of the input on a search 
committee to fill the position. I 
would hope that these words will 
come to fruition this September. If 
an honest working relationship and 
communication with students are 
of value to this Administration, then 
students will be given the right and 
responsibility to choose a person 
they find themselves able to work 
with and basically trust. Perhaps 
the Administration fears the 
consequences of giving students a 
taste of power. If so, then fear, not 
students, will be the nightmare of 
this University's future. 

I shall not expect that Chancellor 
Bromery will forget or reconsider 
his stated comfort with having real 
student input in choosing a rea/ 
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. 
I shall expect his honesty in setting 
himself as an example to be a 
facilitator rather than an ad- 
ministrator. I shall expect him to 
care about the real improvement of

On Labor Day all workers should 
rejoice together. But, there will be 
no joy this Labor Day at UMass, for 
all the students who labored this 
summer will be in a class. It is great 
that the administration is starting 
off the year with a blunder because 
it gives us the strength to keep 
pushing for change, since we know 
something ain't right. 

Whose hair-brained scheme was 
it to start classes before Labor Day? 
Parents, who own one car and 
expected to use the free weekend 
to drive their son or daughter to 
campus have to make other plans. 

Students who work to scrape 
enough bread together throughout 
the summer to last into the winter 
depend upon Labor Day to get 
those bucks. 

Those in restaurant work are 
compelled to stay until the holiday

Security tightens 
at science library 

By Laurie Wood 

A new security system to prevent 
the theft of books is being installed 
in the physical sciences library, 
located in the Graduate Research 
Center, and might be in operation 
by the fall semester, according to 
Richard J. Talbot, UMass library 

Associate Director for Public 
Services, Gordon Fretwell, said that 
if the system proves to be suc- 
cessful in the physical sciences 
library, a decision will then be made 
whether to install it in the main 

The cost of installing the security 
system in the branch library will 
amount to $15,000, but Talbot says 
he expects the investment to pay 
for itself over a period of five years 
with money which normally would 
have been used to replace stolen 

The security system will operate 
- on an electromagnetic principle. A 
magnetic strip will be inserted 
inside every book, such that it will 
be virtually undetectable. Located 
at the checkout desk will be a 
device to neutralize the strip when 
each book has been properly taken 
from the shelf. 

As the individual leaves the 
building, he will walk through an 
electromagnetic field that will be 
able to detect the presence of a 
book whose magnetic strip has not 
been desensitized. The discovery of 
such a book will then trigger a 
buzzing or ringing type of alarm to 
be set off by the security device. 

In response to whether the new 
"^^Security system will be able to 
decrease the amount of books 
stolen from the library, Fretwell 
answered, "there has been proven 
a high degree of success so far in 
other libraries. If the system is a 
complete failure, it will be a first in 
history; and if it's a hundred per 
cent success it also will be a first in 

It will cost ten cents for the 
placement of a strip in each book. 
Fretwell said that because of the 
high strip insertion cost, the 
security system would only include 
bound periodicals, such as those 
found in the special collections and 
the reserve stacks. 

According to Talbot, ap- 

proximately three and a half per 
cent of the new books bought each 
year are stolen. Fretwell added that 
most of the books removed from 
the library are eventually returned. 

He stated that, "the system is 
designed to catch the person who 
needs a book 'now', who cannot 
wait to check it out, but who just 
brings it back without signing it out. 
We want to catch a few who play 
loose and fast with the rules." 

Fretwell said that the system is 
not intended to catch the 
professional thief because he will 
find a way to beat any kind of 
security device, no matter how 
"foolproof" it is. 

Maybe books will not be ripped-off at their present' 
rate, If a new security system in the library system is 
as effective as expected. (Photo by Joe Curran)

Yearly budget looking up 

By Jean Conley 

The budget will once again be 
one of the most critical concerns at 
UMass this academic year, but 
Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery is 
more optimistic this year than last. 

An increase in this year's state 
budget from $66.4 million to $68.1 
million still leaves the campus with 
nearly $3 million less than 18 
months ago, but at least, Bromery 
says, the increase in state funds will 
enable academic departments to do 

some much needed hiring. Over 500 
positions were left vacant during 
fiscal year 1976. 

Bromery feels the hiring will 
increase personnel morale, as 
teaching assistants will be able to 
teach some sections of courses. 
But full-time positions such as 
professorships will have to be 
carefully chosen, he said, as the 
cost for such appointments will 
increase the personnel base costs 
for fiscal 1978. In other words, an 
increase for 1977 does not

Earth Foods acquires 
kitchen space in SUB

Earth Foods will be operating in

The vegetarian student group 
which specializes in "low-cost, 
high-quality alternative lunches" 
has been guaranteed space to cook 
their meals, according to Chris

Director of Food Services in the

Earth Foods is a non-profit co- 
operative venture which began 
operating last Spring Semester. "It 
was a real success and made many 
people happy and satisfied to get a

WMUA kept off 
air eight days 

AUGUST n, 1976 

AUGUST n, 1976 

3y Eric Blair 

WMUA returned to the air 
Monday after a longer than an- 
ticipated shutdown. Unforeseen 
transmitter repair and a shortage of 
painters kept WMUA off the air for 
three days longer than planned. 

Station Manager Charlie Pellett 
had originally expected WMUA to 
resume its regular broadcast 
schedule sometime Thursday 
afternoon, August 5. 

Pellett said he was extremely 
disappointed about the delay due to 
the lack of people willing to work. 
"Originally, a lot of people ex- 
pressed an interest in fixing up the 
place. Too many people saw the 
shutdown as a vacation. I guess if 
things had been organized a little 
better, we'd have had more people 
doing things." 

Over the course of the week- long 
shutdown over 25 station members 
contributed to the interior 
renovations. New coats of paint 

adorn the production studio and 
the station's main control room. 
The record library has an additional 
three shelves for records. Music 
Director Bill Thieman oversees the 
record library and he described the 
previous arrangement as "awk- 

"We had a far more limited set- 
up. There were a lot of types of 
records that were inaccessible. 
Now we've altered the place and 
categorized a tot of music." 
Thieman had a lot of 45's removed 
from the library and has replaced 
them with albums. 

Chief Engineer Gary McAuliffe 
spent many hours at WMUA's 
transmitter site on Orchard Hill. 
McAuliffe said he had all work 
completed on schedule, although 
he did discove' some problems in 
the closed circuit phone loops that 
feed WMUA's signal to the trans- 
mitter. He added, "We could have 
gone on the air jate^last week, but

said. He said a change is necessary

Bromery said extensive renovation

Bromery proposed that the

because he said private contractors 

sometimes have to be hired to do 

the work in the summer.

Our justice system 

By Abdul Malik 

A black Louisiana youth now sits 
on death row for murder, convicted 
of killing a 13-year-old white 
student, Gary Tyler is now-slated to 
die in the electric chair. The 
evidence surrounding the con- 
viction must be questioned. Why 
did this happen? 

It all started when a group of 
white students surrounded a bus 
carrying about 70 blacks throwing 
bricks and bottles in protest. 
Someone fired a shot and a 13- 
year-old white youth fell dead. 

Police immediately began 
dragging people off the bus at gun 
point, the bus was searched from 
top to bottom twice, and nothing 
was found. The bus was then taken 
to the police station where police 
fourKi the gun previously unnoticed 
in an eight inch slit in the seat of the 

Tyler had no knife or other means 
of slashing the seat. The gun, a .45 
automatic, had no finger prints on 
it Also, the lead slug that sup- 
posedly came from the gun showed 
no trace of having passed through a 
human body. 

Additional "evidence" was the 
testimony of two 16-year-old girls 
(black) who have revealed they 
were threatened and harrassed by 
police into saying they saw Tyler 
pointing a gun from the bus. The 
Judge at Tyler's trial was a member 
of the White Citizen's Council (Ku 
Klux Klan). 

He directed the all-white jury to 
find Tyler guilty and then sentenced 
him to the chair. This is no different 
from the Boston dilema, the riot in 
Detroit, or what took place in 
Watts, La. Since November 1974 
when it all took place, Gary Tyler 
still waits. 

Letters of support as well as 
financial help is needed. Please

Renovations at TOC 

By R.S. Gordon 
Grassroots News Service 

In last week's Summer Collegian, 
there was a photo taken of current 
.enovations at the Top of the 
Campus lounge on the 11th floor of 
the Student Union Building. The 
caption said that according to a 
student employe (whose name is 
being withheld) "the new wall 
paper is already getting dirty" and 
that "dirt and dust are being 
deposited on the wallp>aper as the 
old carpeting is being removed." 

Shortly after this photo-article 
appeared, the Grassroots New 
Service contacted employees and 
supervisors who are responsible for 
the renovations. One employe, 
Johnathan M. Davis, who was 
contracted for interior decorating in 

the Campus Center, including 
painting, wallpaper hanging and 
redecorating, was a bit disturbed by 
the article. Davis, in an informal 
interview said "I think that it was 
very unfair to me as well as my 
fellow employes for the Summer 
Collegiar) to criticize the work 
which we have been struggling so 
hard to complete for the pleasure 
and enjoyment of students, faculty 
and University guests. Davis 
continued, "in order for us to meet 
our deadline (September) we must 
use this particular process of 
cleaning. All the wallpaper we have 
hung is completely washable and 
the student employes have been 
working very cooperatively to make 
sure that everything is in order." 
Davis has been an interior 
decorator for thirteen years.

The Wilmington 10 

and the Charlotte 3 

Grassroots News Service 

On September 6 of this year. 
Labor Day, thousands of people will 
march down the streets of Raleigh, 
North Carolina, to demand freedom 
and justice for the Wilmington 10, 
The Charlotte 3, political prisoners 
all over this country, and an end to 
repression of labor and labor 

The march has been called by the 
National Alliance Against Racist 
and Political Repression. The 
Amherst Branch of the NAARPR 
will be chartering a bus to bring 
Amherst-Northampton residents to 
the march. Springfield is planning 
to fill four buses with people to go 
to Raleigh. 

North Carolina has the highest 
number of prisons in the country 
(72) and the lowest percentage of 
union membership. Over 100 men 
and women are on North Carolina's 
Death Row. 

It was in this, setting that 
Reverend Ben Chavis came to 
Wilmington, N.C. in 1971 to help 
resolve the explosive situation 
which had brewed around a 
recently desegregated high school 

in that town. 

Gregory Congregational Church 
in Wilmington was the head- 
quarters of Black students and their 
supporters, from where Reverend 
Chavis led a peaceful march of 1500 
on the Board of Education asking 
for a Black Studies program, the 
end to the suspension of Black 
students without cause, and the 
right to honor Martin Luther King's 

Immediately after, the local Ku 
Klux Klan and other racist vigilantes 
began to fire into the church. 
Several fires were set in the neigh- 
borhood. The police refused to 
intervene until a white man was 
killed, probably from cross-fire from 
the vigilantes. (A Black youth had 
been killed the day before.) 

One year later. Reverend Chavis, 
nine Black high school students, 
and a white woman social worker, 
were charged with arson and 

consDiracy to assault emergency 
personnel. They were senfenced to 
282 years collectively. The only 
witnesses for the government were 
two men, housed luxuriously at 
government expense, and facing 
unrelated criminal charges. All 
appeals of the case have been

On Friday, August 13, at 8 p.m. 
there will be a disco dance at the 
Quonset Hut, Rt. 9, in Amherst.

Moods change in Bowie's newest 

By Dave Santos 

If we were to judge from the title 
of Jethro TuH's latest album, Too 
Old To Rock 'N Roll: Too Young To 
Die. we might just deduce that the 
end is at h'"d. Which was what I 
was afraid of. lull unwittingly may 
be the first rock group to write its 
own epitaph. 

But by now most of you probably 
don't care. Ian Anderson's crushed 
ego has succeeded in turning 
Jethro Tull into what its biggest 
critics were trying to fabricate them 
into. His track record since A 
Passion Play has been totally 
bewildering for this fan. Did Ian 
finally swallow his flute whole? The 
first blow against the empire came 
with the ghastly WarChild Ip and 
tour, both of which were 
unredeemingly evil. No longer was 
Anderson laughing at himself and 
us. He was just laughing at us, 
pawns his seedly little mind games. 
I don't like listening to that album. It 
is not only the lowest point In lull's 
career, but it's so full of hate that 
it's scary. The followup album. 
Minstrel In The Gallery, was an 
enlightening discovery only 
because it was listenable. So you 
can listen to it. 

However, you can't do much else 
with it. At times it is so hopelessly 
detatched from the artist and the 
listener that the supposed "highly 
autobiographical nature" of the 
disk is of no consequence to 
anybody and certainly not us. 
Following these two unproductive 
years (even though the interim 
greatest hits Ip, M.U.. was fun) 
comes the bizarre Too Old To Rock 
'N Roll: Too Young To Die record 
and tour. Save for a few last gasps 
of greatness, 1976 Jethro Tull 
leaves a lot to be desired. 

The new album and tour 
d.epressingly points out that the 
days of Jethro Tull are numbered, if 
they're not already over. For 
starters, Anderson's compositional 
talents have sagged vividly since 
Passion Play. Once un- 
compromising, Ian now ac- 
commodates his writing to 
whatever he thinks we want — 
which ends up being a wrong 
calculation on his part. Though Ian 
was unduly lambasted for Passion 
Play, he has vented his contempt 
for all of us (the critics for not 
understanding and the fans for not 
really trying to understand) via his 
past on-the-mark cynicism. But 
never has he been so off the mark. 
Will the geezer ever recover from 
his poor crushed ego? Does he 
want to? Save for one song off the 
new Ip ("Taxi Grab"), we are 
subjected to trite complaints of 
being a rock star and broken 
romances. The lyrics and music 
lack the knockout punchiness of 
classic Jethro Tull. Cutesy 
Donovanesque poetry and acoustic 
poo-poo has replaced biting 
commentary and mesmerizing 
ensemble playing. 

The subsequent tour for Too Old 
To Rock serves only to increase in 
one's eyes and ears the decline. On 
July 15th I witnessed Tull's means 
to an end. I came with hope for the 
future and only succeeded in 
coming away depressed. Compared 
to the '73 Passion Play Tour, Tull 
seemed listless. (And I am not 
complaining about the lack of 
theatrics either). First of all came 
the cold announcement from an 
English fellow that "Flashbulbs are 
neither wanted nor appreciated". 
So much for the fans. The opening 
piece. Thick As A Brick, was 
tiresome and uninspired. Anderson 

and the band were only going 
through the motions, especially 
John Evan and Martin Barre who 
looked and played positively bored. 
The playing throughout the show 
was precise and unemotional, 
except for a few spots. The only 
notable exception during the show 
was the medley of "A New Day 
Yesterday" and "To Cry You A 
Song". Both oldies were exciting 
and instructive (if you know what I 
mean). The different between the 
past and present day Tull is 
strikingly embarassing. 

As for Ian Anderson — 
showman, film-maker, gymnast, 
etc. — he has become a repetitive 
performer to say the least. All the 
breathy flute runs and hand 

Mark Twain 

"Put all your eggs in one 
basket — and watch that 

This is at least one of the 
philosophies of the timeless 
Mark Twain, the author, 
humorist, preacher, statesman. 
The man who held a vicious 
contempt for crowds. But the 
crowds loved him anyway. 

And they still do. Mark 
Twain is relived by Tom Noel, a 
prominent Broadway actor 
who looks, talks and sings like 
Mark Twain. Yes, Twain sang 
too. Through his nose, mostly. 

Tom Noel will present "Mark 
Twain at Home", tomorrow 
night, Thursday, in the Fine 
Arts Center. 

The trouble begins at 8 p.m., 
and admission is free. "Mark 
Twain at Home" is presented 
by Summer Activities and 
Continuing Ed.

motions do not a concert make. His 
flute solo is utterly worthless, it 
being no more than a composite of 
the last five years of touring. 

I could go on and on. Maybe I 
should. Anyways, Jethro Tull may 
finally be washed up. If this indeed 
true, I'll still have a place in my 
heart for them. Even despite the 
fact that I feel betrayed. The empire 
is falling and we're all dangling by a 
codpiece: do we really have to live 
in the past Ian? 



I'm glad I had the weekend to 

examine the problem." 

During the first day back on the 
air, WMUA's signal was in mono 
instead of the usual stereo. 
McAuliffe said he wanted the 
station in such a way for one day so 
he and representatives from New 
England Telephone's Special 
Services Division could "further 
analyze the problems." 

Pellett said that this was the first 
time in three years that WMUA has 
had a planned shutdown. "We've

we've had emergency shutdowns,

"Some of us were very ap-

Once McAuliffe stated his case and 
explained the types of problems

"In the long run, the work will

The Cashier's Office was closed 
immediately. Wilkes said the memo 
is permanent, and "the locks have

In an interview Monday, Guiko 
said he thinks the BOG is not 
representative of the students, and 
Chancellor Bromery agreed. 
He cited a SAREO survey in which 
79.1 per cent of the students 
responded that they want a full- 
service commercial bank some- 
where in the Campus Center- 
Student Union Complex. The BOG 
said the question was misleading, 
however, because it included the 
clause, "If having such a bank were 
to reduce your Campus Center fee 
by $5 per year."

Empire Brass Quintet performs dynamically 

Norman Bolter takes a 
bow after a standing 
ovation from the en-

By E. Patrick McQuaid 

Only a small number of brass 
enthusiasts weathered the storm of 
Monday night to attend a dynamic 
performance of classical and 
popular music by the Empire Brass 

Regardless of the inclemency 
outside and the undersized crowd 
inside, the program began as 
scheduled, opening with a light 
classical piece by Bernstein 
[Fanfare for Tima\ and followed by 
two strictly traditional classics by 
Gabrieli \Canzona per sonare No. 1\ 
and Albinoni [Suite en sol]. The 
first half of the program was 
finished with the neoteric sounds of 
Schuller's Little Brass Music and a 
suite from Gershwin's Porgy and 

The Empire Brass Quintet 
consists of Rolf Smedvig on 
trumpet, David Ohanian, playing 
the French horn, and Normal 
Bolter, on trombone, all of whom 
are among the youngest members 
of the Boston Symphony Or- 
chestra. On tuba was Samuel 
Pilafian and standing in for 
trumpeter Charles A. Lewis, Jr. was 
Armando Ghitalla, a principal 
trumpet player for the Boston 
Symphony Orchestra. 

The Empire Brass Quintet gave 
its inaugural performance at the 
First New York Brass Conference 
for Scholarships in 1973 and has 
concertized extensively ever since. 
Called "a group of young super- 
virtuosi" by Michael Tilson 
Thomas, the Quintet was one of a 
handful of young artists selected by 
High Fidelity -Musical America for 
their "annual roster of new names 
to watch for" in 1974. 

In 1975 they became Quintet in 
Residence at Boston University and 
appeared on th« liv« PBS television 

special New Year's Eve at Pops. A 
successful New Ydrk recital debut 
followed shortly thereafter, and in 
March they embared upon a whirl- 
wind tour of Europe, playing 13 
concerts in 15 days. Their European 
itinerary included concerts in Paris, 
Milan, Salzburg, Berlin and Am- 
sterdam; with radio recordings in 
Basel, Cologne. Berlin and 

Next season the Empire Brass 
Quintet will appear on the Boston 
Morning Musicales, becoming the 
first brass group ever invited to 

appear on the series which has 

presented many of the world's 
great artists from Sergei Rach- 
maninoff and Ignace Paderewski to 
Jascha Heifetz and Beverly Sills. 
Shortly before intermission, tuba 
player Samuel Pilafian announced 
that not only is July 4th the 
country's birthday, it is also the 
150th birthday of Stephen Foster, 
American composer. The Quintet 
played a medley of "O Suzzanna — 
I Dream of Jeannie — Camptown 
Races" in salute to the occasion. 

The Quintet almost enjoyed 
themselves, as much as the 
audience when they performed 

Scott Joplin's Paragon Rag. They 
explained that their final piece, 
Friederich's Selections from the 
American Brass Band Journal, was 
composed between 1853 and 1854 
because there were over 300 brass 
bands in the country at that time, 
and a New York publishing firm 
thought it would be a good venture. 
Recently the Quintet recorded 
the American Brass Band Journal 
on Columbia (M34192); and a 
second recording of Brian Fen- 
nelly's Prelude and Elegy, made 
under the composer's personal 
supervision will be released shortly 
by Advance Records.

Private colleges may 1^ 
be exempt from tax 

By Cliff Skibinsky 

The refusal of many state 
colleges and universities, including 
UMass, to levy the eight per cent 
state meal tax against their 
students, has prompted a drive for 
legislative action to exempt private 
colleges from the tax. 

The tax, which was first levied 
against institutions of private 
education last year, has increased 
meal fees substantially at private 
schools according to James A. 
True, vice-president for govern- 
mental relations of the Association 
of Independent Colleges and 
Universities in Massachusetts 
(AICUM), headquartered in Boston. 
AICUM figures show that meal fees 
were increased from $50 to $80 at 
the four private colleges in the 
Amherst area - Amherst, Hamp- 
shire, Mount Holyoke and Smith 

True said the tax was "grossly 
unfair" and "discriminatory." He 
said the increased costs jeopardize 
future enrollments in private in-, 

AlCUM's goal is not to force 
state institutions to pay the tax, 
saw True, but rather, to eliminate 
the tax from all student meal 

True said AICUM would ask the 
Speaker of the House to promote 
legislation relieving private in- 
stitutions of the tax burden. If that 
fails, AICUM would consider other 
actions, including a suit against the 

Peter Benkus, tax examiner for 
the State Department of Cor- 
porations and Taxation, said that 
the argument used by the state 
schools, including the University to 
avoid the tax - that the tax applied 
only to private individuals and not 

public institutions - is invalid. 

"The Department never con- 
sidered state universities exempt; 
the tax is not on the state in- 
stitutions but on their students - 
private individuals," he said. 

Tax Commissioner Owen Clarke 
has predicted that the issue will go 
into litigation if and when the state 
tries to collect the tax from the 
state schools again this year. 

Although he was not available for 
comment Director of Food Services 
at UMass, Arthur Warren, was 
quoted by the Daily Hampshire 
Gazette (August 11) as claiming 
that the University will again refuse 
to pay the tax, if the state tries to 

Rudy Cappadona, assistant Food 
Service Director, said there will be 
no changes this year in the cost of 
the UMass meal plans due to the 



The pack is back, and they can be seen practicing 
every afternoon on the Southwest Playing Fields until 
they leave on Friday. See the story on Page 7. (Photo

UM plans moving 
student services 



d Y Claudia Riemer 

The Univewity is now con- 
sidering a long range plan to 
transfer all the offices concerned 
with student affairs now located on 
the second floor of Whitmore to 
Goodell hall with the hope of 
creating a "one step location for 
student services" said Dean 
Alfonge, in a telephone interview,

propriations Bill for the entire state"

for UMass. "The bill is only a 
request for the money to remodel 
Goodell. It is a University decision 
as to the purpose of the recon-

I he University was informed a in the Planning Office said that "the

while ago that money, ap- 
proximately $2 million, was 
available for the renovation of 
Goodell hall. Then discussed was 
what would be done wtth the hall 
and the Chancellor decided that it 
would be used as a center for 
student services. 

"The plan to remodel Goodell 
was submitted through the 
Chancellor's office to the 
Legislature and is actually only a

student services such as the 
Registrar, Bursar, Housing, Ad- 
missions, Veterans Affairs, 
Counseling functions and many 
special programs, into one building

(especially freshmen) a little easier. 

An architect has been procured 
by the Planning Office and he will 
be "conducting a feasability study 
in Goodell over this year. 


Plan does not include students 

Valley Health Plan goes into operation 

The Valley of Health Plan [VHP], 
the alternative comprehensive 
health care service for student 
dependents and UMass employes, 
will be instituted this semester after 
four years of study and debate. 
Staff reporter Marc Zimmerman 
explains a detailed history of the 
VHP, along with guarantees to- 
students by Health Services 
Director Barry Avert//. 

When did it begin? 
In March of 1972, $23,000 was 
granted by the Tri-state regional 
Medical program to a group ot 
Amherst Medical Associates and 
University administrators for a 
feasibility study for a Health 
Maintainance Organization (HMO). 
Simply speaking, an HMO is a 
group of health professionals that 
contracts with subscribers to 
provide them with "com- 
prehensive" health care services. 
This group of American Medical 
Association (AMA) and University 
officials came to the conclusion 
that an HMO in Amherst and 
vicinity is "needed, desirable and 

In August 1974, application for a 

grant was made to the U.S. Public 

Health Service for planning funds, 

'and in January of 1975, $125,000 

was granted. 

By March, three Amherst 
Medical Associates, three 
University Health Service ad- 
^ministrators and nine consumers 
ibted as a Board of Directop 

to establish a separate corporation 
(non-profit) to plan, develop and 
implement an HMO for the 
Amherst area. They called 
themselves the Valley Health Plan 
(VHP) and in December, 1975, the 
VHP submitted an application to 
the U.S. Public Health Service for 
additional development funding. . 
They received almost a half million 
dollars. Thus, the Valley Health 
Plan was born, and this fall will be 
the opening of the VHP at UMass. 
The VHP will make available to 
state and University employes the 
option of joining their program in 
lieu of receiving care thru the Aetna 
Insurance program. The VHP has 
contracted with the University to 
use University Health Services for 
some of its members. Only 
University faculty, staff and their 
families who have joined the VHP 
can use the services. An estimated 
thousand people will sign up for the 
VHP and use the Health Services. 
The VHP will hire eight full-time 
staff people to compensate for the 
influx of VHP'ers. Those eight 
positions are: two clerical staff, one 
clinic assistant, one nurse prac- 
titioner, two staff assistants for 
health education, one staff 
physician and one psychiatrist. 

In addition, the VHP will expend 
ovef $26,000 for new equipment 
such as an eye care unit and new 
cardiac equipment The VHP is also 
paying for 52 per cent of the new 
renovations to the Health Services 

facility. These renovations include 
an eye-care unit and the most 
expensive project, a new parking 

An estimated $52,502 will be paid 
to the Health Services to reimburse 
the Student Health Trust Fund 
(SHTF) for services rendered to 
VHP'ers. An additional $18,150 will 
be reimbured to the SHTF for the 
use of Health Services staff, who 
are paid for full-time work, for the 
final planning_phases of VHP. 



The Guarantees 
Before the Student Health 
Advisory Board (SHAB) and the 
Undergraduate Student Senate 
approved the plan, Barcy Averill 
Director of Health Services, gave 
the students . some guarantees. 
They are: 

1) Students have top priority on 
inpatient beds. VHP'ers will be 
transferred to nearby hospitals if 
they are preventing a student 
access to inpatient beds. 

2) Parking and building 
renovation costs will not involve the 
SHTF without prior approval of the 
SHAB. The SHAB has approved 
$14,000 for the parking lot plus 
another $7,000 from student funds 
for in attendant 

3) The VHP will guarantee one 
hundred per cent payment for all 
extra professional staff hired for the 
first year of operation. 

4) All costs involved in providing 
services to VHP members will be 
covered by the VHP contract and 
under no circumstances will bMTF 
be expanded 

5) The VHP contract provides 
adequate insolvency plans to 
assure appropriate financial 
protection for the University. 

6) The Health Services will put a 
ceiling of 2500 on total VHP- 
student dependent enrollment for 
the first year of operation. 

7) There shall be a ceiling on 
mental health consultation allotted 
VHP members during the academic 

8) Students and their dependents 
will receive full priority in meeting 
their dental health needs through 
the Health Services and no VHP 
member will be allowed to utilize 
the dental facilities of the Health 
Center, except in emergency. 

The VHP intends to enroll 
Medicare and Medicaid members 
by its second year of operation. At 
the outset, VHP plans only to cover 
those state and University em- 
ployes who are eligible for the 
Aetna Plan, but they do plan to 
conduct "open enrollment" 
(enrollment of non- members) "no 
later than its fourth year of 
operation". Along with accepting 

■ the VHP, the Health" Services has 
for the first time allowed student 
dependents to enroll with the 
Student Health Plan. 

VHP administrators claim to have 
correctly estimated the additional 
needs to the infirmary that the VHP 
and student dependents will 
demand. The VHS staff will be 
faced with different case work due 
to the influx of VHP'ers and student 
dependents who are mostly 
younger or older than their present 
clientel (18-25 years). 

But the contract with VHP is for 

one year at a time "and any time 

that the students feel that their 

health care has been compromised, 

they can move to discontinu( 

coritractual relations with the VH 

P," according to Averill. 

Notification of termination of this 

contract must be made three 

months before the date the 

previous contract was signed. 


Any student that feels his-her 
health care at the Health Services 
has been "compromised" is asked 
to notify the Student Health Ad- 
visory Board at the infirmary and 
the Student Senate in the Student 
Union. Any student wis Ing direct 
student involvement in the VHP is 
asked to contact Annette Gut- 
tenberg. Speaker of the Student 
Senate at 545-0341.

The CC bank battle 

The Administration has claimed 
that revenues totaling close to 
$100,000 will be lost unless the First 
National Bank of Amherst is 
allowed to operate a branch facility 
in the Campus Center-Student 
Union. Because of its opposition to 
the project, the Board of Governors 
has been charged responsible for 
the forfeiture; which will result in a 
$5 impact on the Campus Center 

The $100,000 first appeared as 
the bottom line of a pro forma 
income statement contained in a 
memo from Interim Director 
William Field to the BOG dated 
February 19, 1976. The amount was 
arrived at in the following manner: 

$25,900 operational deficit — 
cashier's office 

$24,060 income from Bank 

$50,000 new income 


The loss incurred by the 
Cashier's Office is falsely stated. 
The amount is broken down into its 
component parts in the Field memo 
yet, conspiciously absent are the 
service commissions which are 
accrued by the operation for 
collecting lab fees and receiving 
telephone bill payments. These 
commissions, included in the CC. 
budget amount to $25,500 and 
$1,200 respectively. Taken with the 
alleged deficit we find the Cashier's 
Office netting $800. As things have 
turned out. Chancellor Bromery 
recently ordered the University 
Bursar's Office to assume 
responsibility for the operation; 
effectively taking it out of the 

Fully half of the projected gain is 
titled "new income" which would 

be derived from an increase in 
spending by University faculty and 
staff and Campus Center (CC) 
conferees. It is believed by the 
administration that the services 
offered by a bank (particularly 
check cashing) would draw these 
people into the Campus Center. 
Furthermore, they would be in- 
clined to spend money in the 
building. Building income (money 
that can be applied to the fee) after 
all associated expense is 2 per cent 
of total revenues. Assuming that 
expenses will diminish as a 
proportion of additional income, 
the Campus Center could expect a 
relatively large payoff on new 
monies. Whether this will amount 
to $50,000 or even come close is 
another matter. 

It is beyond the Board's com- 
prehension that the administration 
can say, on the one hand, that 
about $50,000 is the balance 
depending upon the disposition of 
the Bank issue and on the other 
hand that there would be no net 
effect on revenues if student check 
cashing is no longer provided for in 
the CC-SU. 

It has become increasingly clear 
that the Bank proposal as has been 
presented to the Board is not 
representative of sound planning. 
Indeed, the CC must seek the in- 
volvement of the larger community 
- but does this necessarily mean 
the leasing out of student space to 
commercial operations? The ad- 
ministration has failed to look at the 
broader issues but has instead 
attempted to initiate a patchwork of 
partial sv<lutions in the place of 
long-range planning, for which 
there is no substitute. 

Peter DeGregon'o Is a member of 
the Board of Governors.

The Amherst Zoning Board met last Thursday 
evening to hear appeals to the local zoning laws. 
There was a family present seeking a variance to the 
zoning laws of Amherst which had been used against 
them. The law in question prohibits more than four 
unrelated persons from sharing a single family home 
in certain neighborhoods of this town. Laws similar to 
this have been up held by the United States Supreme 
Court on a previous occasion. 

The family was ordered to cease and desist from 
the home they had shared since June 1 of this year. 
This family, though not a family by birth or law, 
consisted of eleven persons brought together out of 
emotional ties and economic hardship. They are Mr. 
and Mrs. Robert Singleton and four children; Mr. and 
Mrs. Douglas Chandler and one child; Ms. Susan 
Brodhurst; and Ms. Helen Comnity. This group 
consists of two students and unemployed persons n 
training with CETA. They assert that they are a large, 
unusual, yet close knit family of whom the law has 
chosen to disapprove. Since June 1, they have lived at 
47 Carriage Lane in a development of single family 
dwellings, a characteristic they had not been aware of 
before moving to the location. Most of the members 
of the neighborhood, excluding this family, belong to 
a local residents organization called the Green 
Meadows Association. 

The appointed time had arrived and this family, 
along with Attorneys Landset and Starr of the UMass 
Legal Services, members of the Amherst Tenants 
Association,and friends, gathered to seek a variance 
from the zoning law. The violation and eviction were 
read and Chester Penza, Housing Inspector made his 
comments, reiterating the violation and interest in 
following the law. Ellis Landsett of the LSO spoke in 
the family's defense, sighting the fact that they have 
caused no tro'jble, eviction would be an emotional 
hardship, and stated that Amherst could never 
equitably enforce this law. 

Next the family spoke in its own defense, 
highlighted by thirteen year old Craig, son of Mr. and 
Mrs. Chandler. Craig felt that they were being 
discriminated against because they were not ai< or- 
dinary family. He stressed that they were a family just 
the same and that there are "exceptions to everv 

After further comment on their behalf, the board let 
it be known who the petitioners were, and sure 
enough it was members of the upstanding Green 
Meadows Association, led by Douglas and Helen 
Dale, "a single family". Mrs. Dale's response to the 
pleas of the Chandler's and Singleton's was that she 


chose not to deal in emotions and such stuff, but 
preferred to "stick to the law". She was supported 
with testimony from like minded neighbors and 
"single families". 

Perhaps the most ironic factor of "Mrs. Dale's 
remarks was that her refusal to deal in emotions ana 
to "stick to the law", was grounded in her narrow- 
minded and emotional incapacity to recognize the 
family- like nature of this group of people living 
comfortably and quietly down the street. She sought 
to use the law as a defense of her emotional 
preferences and prejudice, rather than to show some 
tolerance and understanding for those who choose to 
lead their lives a little bit differently from her own. 

The attitude of the Dale's and the other members of 
the Green Meadow Association seemed to place a 
high value in excluding deviant sorts from their little 
South Amherst nirvana and to maintain the purity and 
"moral" fabric of the nuclear family neighborhood. 
Further, they feared the onslaught of the student 
population as the cramped housing market moves 

I was disgusted by the hearing and by those who 
prompted and carried out the initial eviction order. 
Perhaps you would preserve the physical and social 
plurality of Green Meadows, yet you degrade morality 
by your cheap prejudice. The Green Meadows 
Association and the Housing Inspector have 
prostituted the Legal System by selectively enforcing 
the law to maintain an Apartheid like purity in their 
community. If this local ordinance is to be exercised in 
this instance of hate, then perhaps the town should 
attempt to use it against all those forced into similar 
situations by high unemployment and over-priced 
housing in this area. The town would never do this, 
for it would create general havoc and an uproar of 
protest. It is time for more low-cost housing and rent 
control in this town. Perhaps those of us who suffer 
under the effects of high cost, low quality housing will 
have the capacity to effect appropriate changes at the 
Town Meeting this October. It is time discrimination 
of this sort should be done away with and it is time 
that the United States Supreme Court stopped 
sanctioning it. 

Near the end of the hearing, and just before the 
Zoning Board postponed a decision, thirteen year old 
Craig rose and answered the neighbors' fears: "We 
are not outstepping the idea of a family. We are not 
setting a precedent for communes. This is not a 
commune... I don't believe in communes... I live in a

Dogpatch fish ts the NUKE 

HIS-story tells us that Al Capp made the small 
town of Seabrook, N.H. famous some years ago with 
his rendition- bastardization of the community through 
his comic strip syndication L 'il Abner and the town of 
Dogpatch. Well, more recently the people's story is 
beginning to put this small town back in the news- 
papers, only this time it stands on the front page and 
instead of a distorted view of the 'hilbilly' life it is 
about a real movement that is building against the 
Seabiv^ok nuclear power plant and all forms of nuclear 

On August 1, 1976 the Clamshell Alliance, an 
alliance pulled together by several New England 
organizations to stop the Seabrook NUKE (short for 
nuclear power plant), sponsored the first of a series of 
demonstrations and occupations against the building 
of the Seabrook NUKE. With over 500 people at- 
tending ten demonstrations and 18 people occupying 
the NUKE site (all 18 were eventually arrested) the 
inevitability of non violent civil disobedience blessed 
the m' Js of people-faring citizens. 

Non-violent civil disobedience has become the 
positive expression of the masses in time of tyrannical 
negativeness. Not that tyranny can be positive yet in 
the light of one N.H. Governor Meldrin Thompson's 
(the same gov. who requested nuclear arms for his 
national guard), whose rule has always been tyran- 
nical, decision to build the Seabrook NUKE in total 
disregard for the people of Seabrook's 2 to 1 decision 
against this nuclear plant-ation clearly gives af- 
firmation to tyrannical negativeness. And the people 
of Seabrook and the Clamshell Alliance are staging an 
all out people's war to end the atomic mushroom that 
looms overhead. 

Nuclear power tias been proven unsafe. Yet, the 
multi-national corporations (specifically 

Westinghouse, G.E., etc.) lack of humanness, lying 
through their teeth, tells the consumer that with 
nuclear power we will have 40 per cent less cavities. 
What they don't tell us is that with nuclear power we 
will have 100 per cent more body decay. The Public 
Service Company (the corporation building the 
NUKE) has continually told the people of Seabrook 

that the power plant is strong enough to withstand a 
jet airplane crash and a full scale earthquake once 
around. (They seemed to have forgotten that there 
are aftershocks after the first shock.) 

What the PSC doesn't tell the people of Seabrook 
N.H. is that a woman named Karen Silkwood would 
have died of radiation poisoning if the pro-Nuke 
goons hadn't killed her first. (The establishment media 
IS pretty good at hushing up things like this. Very 
damaging to corporate profits, you know?!) The PSC 
won't tell the people of Seabrook that three GE 
technicians quite their jobs because from their ex- 
periences with nuclear power they found it unsafe. 
And the PSC won't tell the people of Seabrook that at 
a NUKE plant in Indian Point, N.Y. the radiation 
leakage is so bad that the welders of the steel joints 
have to be replaced every two days because then they 
have received the maximum governmental dosage 

Most people seem to feel that any dosage of 
radiation is bad. Kind of makes you think which side 
the government is on. 

Consequently, people have decided that the only 
way to stop the NUKE is to act in a principled mass 
kind of way. That the only way to make tyranny listen 
to our cries is to sit on its ugly face. And on August 
22, two hundred more people are prepared to sit on ' 
that ugly face and stay there until bodily removed. But 
then we will return to sit once again, and again and 

Come to Seabrook, N.H. on August 22 and say NO 
NUKE to Meldrin Thompson, PSC, GE ad nasum; say 
NO to tyrannical negativeness; say NO to 100 per cent 
body decay, and say NO to the ugly face!! Remember, 
Hiroshima was not just another nightmare. It was for 
real. Nuclear power is not meant for people, it is 
meant for destruction.

August an important month \ Cure the causes to cure the disease 
in Puerto Rican struggle 

To the Editor: 

On August 19th, there will be a 
film shown in Northampton about 
the history of the Puerto Rican 
independence struggle. 

This August is an important 
month for the Free Puerto Rico 
Movement, because this month the 
colonial case of Puerto Rico is 
being considered at the United 
Nations. The Decolonization 
Committee will discuss and vote up 
on a resolution reaffirming Puerto 
Rico's right to self-determination 
and calling for the withdrawal of 
the United States from Puerto 
Rican affairs. 

§ A letter campaign is being 
conducted that is directed at nine 
non-aligned countries' U.N. 

delegations for the purpose of 
showing them that U.S. citizens 
support Puerto Rican in- 

§ On August 26th there will be a 
demonstration of that support to be 
held at the United Nations in New 
York. For letters, info, and rides to 
NYC contact Puerto Rican 
Solidarity Committee, P.O. Box 
119, Hadley, Ma. 

The film will be shown at 7:30 
p.m. at the People's Institute, 31 
Gothic St., Northampton. There 
will be child care and music 
provided, a bakesale held and a 
donation of $1.50 is asked. Puerto

To the Editor: 

The Umass library system is 
about to install a $15,000 security 
system in the Physical Sciences 
Library. (Summer Collegian, 
August 11), The purpose of this 
system is not to catch book thieves 
(book thieves should be shot) but 
to catch persons who take books 
out of the library and eventually 
return them without triplicate 
permission from the library staff. 
This is indeed a problem for the 
library as any library would have a 
difficult time providing good and 
efficient service without knowledge 
as to where all the books are at all

Whitmore vs. Students 
'a serious mistake' 

To the Editor: 

It is a general practice at the 
Summer Collegian for the author of 
an editorial to leave the titling to the 
Editors. As a writer for the Summer 
Collegian, I have cooperated with 
the custom, and up until now have 
had little problem with the titles 

However, the title Whitmore VS. 
Students was a serious mistake on 
the part of the editors of the 
Summer Collegian. My editorial, 
though critical of the administration 
of the University, was by no 
means a drawing of battle lines as 
the title placed on my article may 

connote. The choosing of a new 
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs 
is a sensitive issue which can only 
be agitated by drawing battle lines 
and taking pot shots. I offer my 
apologies to those who perhaps 
received a shaded impression of my 

I may have attempted to crucify a 
previously patronized Dr. Gage, but 
I would suggest a stronger bond of 
communication between ad- 
ministration and students rather 
than "war."

disease that has yet lo be 
diagnosed. Someone should ask 
why people don't bother to check 
out the books they borrow. Cure 
the causes and the disease won't 
exist. And the money wouldn't 
have to be spent. 

Have you ever tried to check out 
eight books simultaneously from 
the Physical Sciences library in the 
15 minutes before a class? The rules 
must not be beat. 

Find a pencil. That's the easy 
part. Next fill out your name, ad- 
dress, telephone number, and 
various other and sundry in- 
formation depicting your identity. 
Now do it again. Now do it six more 
times. Yes, once for every book. 

You now have writer's cramp. 

Shake your hand to get the blood 
circulating again. Next find your 
student I.D. Get a library clerk's 
attention and several minutes of 
his-her time. (They're usually busy, 
but I won't complain) and 
everything is in order you'll be on 
your way with eight properly 
borrowed books. 

Don't bother hurrying, you're 
already late to class. 

I've patronized a lot of libraries in 
my life, and I've never had to spend 
as much time and energy checking 
out a book. 

But there is a better way. And it 
might just cost $15,0(X) less. 

I am "one who (sometimes) plays 
loose and fast with the rules.

A brand name label? 
Then what is Blackness? 

To the Editor: 

It is the belief of most that in 
order to be Black you have to be up 
with the latest jams. Disco party 
from night until daybreak. Well, 
brothers and sisters, if you listeri 
beyond the disco-beat you'll hear 
sirens in the night, slowly fading 
with brothers and sisters who were 
living the Blackness most are 
dancing too. So what constitutes 
Blackness? Is it the appearance or 
the struggle? A phrase, "It's not 
what a person says about a term 
but what is important is how the 

term is used", may not seem im- 
portant now but someday when an 
intruder wearing a red, white and 
blue patch on his sleeve and a 
bandage on his chest confronts 
you, you'd wish Blackness wasn't 
just an idle term. So if I'm naive 
enough to believe that Black is a 
brand name label, then what is

Emotions run high in collective bargaining 

Bv Malerin Vnien 

"Emotions run high in a 
collective bargaining issue," stated 
Zina Tillona, Special Assistant to 
the Chancellor. Ms. Tillona has 
been responsible for sending out 
newsletters and articles to the 
faculty concerning this issue. Next 
fall, a faculty union election will 
take place and Ms. Tillona "wants 
to be sure that people vote with as 
much knowledge as possible." 

There have been some objections 
to her newsletters, however. In 
July, Ms. Tillona sent out a law 
journal article written by Author 
Menard who argues that collective 
bargaining jeopardizes tenure. Ms. 
Tillona says she chose this par- 
ticular article because she felt 
Menard is the most experienced 
lawyer in the field of University 
Labor Law. 

Larry Roberts, President of MSP 
(Mass. Society of Professors), feels 
othenrt/ise. Most of the faculty 
involved in MSP favor collective 
bargaining and the society is 
seeking to become the agent at the 
University. Roberts feels that the

prevalent atmosphere on campus is 
in favor of unionization, yet there 
are still some people who could go 
either way. "Zina's intention was to 
sway undecided people by sending 
out this article," he said. 

Tillona claims, that she is trying to 
channe' information to the faculty 
that reflects the views from both 

Three years ago, when a similar 
election was held, 98 per cent of the 
faculty voted. "This year I want to 
be sure the outcome really reflects 
the views of the faculty," Ms. 
Tillona said. "There are two types 
of votes, the emotional and the 
knowledgable. The administration 
is trying to give the faculty the 
means to weigh the factors before 
they cast their vote." she claims. 
One man who is openly opposed 
to the article sent out in July is Otto 
Stein, Professor of Botany. In 
response to the article, he wrote a 
letter to Tillona which was copied 
and sent to all faculty members and 
in part read, "...I must view any 
message from above with suspicion 
and that isn't allayed at all when I 
find that the article recommended 
for my study is authored by the 
very lawyer who had been hired by 
the University Administration to 
fight unionization before the Labor 
Relations Board!" He goes on to 
accuse the administration of being 
incompetent at various levels and 
squandering money. Stein was 
infuriated that the July letter was 
sent out through the regular and

added cost. "We could have used 
that money for supplies in this

Barfield quits losing battle' 

Larry Roberts feels that collective 
bargaining does not jeopardize 
tenure. "There has never been a 
contract approved that negotiated 
away tenure," he said. 

The key to collective bargaining 
is power and strength as a 
collective unit, Robert feels. ''.If the 
faculty unionized, we would be in a 
stronger position to say how money 
is spent by the administration," he 

The reason Roberts feels most 
faculty are in favor of unionization 
as opposed to the negative feeling 
three years ago is a growing 
disenchantment with the policies 
adopted by the Board of Trustees. 
As a unit, the faculty have not 
received a salary increase in about 
three years. "We keep losing 
ground with respect to the standard 
of living. With collective bargaining, 
we'd have more power to bargain a 
salary schedule," Roberts said. 

Well, for now anyway tempers 
are flaring while information flows 
from every viewpoint.

Vivian Barfield, an energetic and 
dedicated woman, is resigning from 
her job as Assistant Director of 
Athletics to accept a more 
responsible position at the 
University of Minnesota.

of a losing battle. 

Barfield came here in January 
1975 under the assumption that she 
would have a responsible position 
in both men's and women's 

She found out that she was 
allowed to deal exclusively with 
women. It also took sixteen months 
for her to get the job description of 
the position that was offered her. 

Barfield is the only woman in the 
athletic department who serves in a 
decision making position, yet she 
claims that she doesn't have, an 
equal vote in policy making. "My 
voice seems lost in the wilderness," 
she said. 

Regardless of her anger toward 
the UMass Athletic Department, 
Barfield feels that this past year has 
been a successful one in the sports 
arena. Participation in in- 
tercollegiate women's sports in- 
creased from 165 to 300 students. 
She attributes this to the concerted 
effort of all the woman's coaches 
and to the fact that "women are 
ready to be athletes now." 

"I don't think that at UMass they 
see these women as being serious.

but these women are," said Bar- 
field. Unfortunately, she found this 
out the hard way. Barfield had 
come to UMass believing that she'd 
have a good opportunity to learn 
more about both men's and 
women's athletics. Now, she is 
angry at having wasted seventeen 
years of my life." 

Barfield is more optimistic about 
her future position at the University 
of Minnesota.. She has been out 
there a few times and has already 
met the women's athletic staff. She 
said, "It looks very healthy, it looks 
like they'll show their commitment 
in providing women equal access to 
the physical education programs. 
And there," she emphasized, "the 
women will decide, " 

She went on to say that a 
comparison can't be made between 
the physical education department 
at UMinn and the one at UMass 
because they are funded dif- 
ferently. "But you can look at the 
way they go about providing op- 
portunities," she added. 

Barfield feels that women are 
discriminated against in sports 
because, "attitudes haven't 
changed yet." She feels that, "as 
soon as the men realize that women 
are serious, they'll be just as excited 
as we are." She added that, "some 
men in the UMass department are 
as excited as the women are." 

Barfield doesn't know who will 
fill her present position as assistant 
athletic director when she leaves. "I 
would have liked to have seen 
UMass be the first university to 
grant a female equal ground in this 
area," she said. But she has no 
indication that things will change. 

Barfield seems like a serious- 
minded woman who will thrive in a 
position of responsibility. Next year 
she is more than likely to have the 
chance to prove it

Fresh veggies in Amherst 

By John Silhtto 

Garden fresh vegetables for 
sale. Corn, tomatoes, peppers, 
lettuce, cucumbers, squash, and 
carrots picked fresh this morning. 
The prices are low and the 
salespersons are friendly and 
competitive. And it's right here in 
Amherst at the Amherst Common 

Many of the growers have been 
up since 4 picking their produce to 
bring it fresh to the Saturday 
morning market that opens at 7:30 
and runs till noon on the Amherst 
Town Common. If you're not an 
early riser on Saturday, the market 
is also open Wednesday evenings 
from 3:30 - 6:30 p.m. 

Vendors offer fresh produce, 
baked goods, pickles, jams and 

jellies all grown baked or cooked in 
the area by the vendors themselves. 
On this last Saturday morning the 
Hampshire County Extension 
service was even present to show 
how to preserve vegetables if you 
couldn't resist buying them by the 

Usually there are about 20 booths 
at the common market. There is 
quite a bit of competition among 
the vegetable growers with five or 
six stands to choose from each 
market day for common produce 
Other vendors specialize in baked 
and canned goods. 

Several of the regular vendors 
feature organically grown 
vegetables. Fresh cut herbs are 
almost always for sale. 

Live potted herbs are also sold. 
Flowers are for sale both cut «nd 

growing in pots. Early in the 
growing season your.g tomatoes 
and pepper plants are^also sold for 
transplanting in a garden. On 
Wednesday afternoon you may 
also find some of Amherst street 
vendors selling buritos and fruit 
juices at the market. 

Anyone can sell his product at 
the market. People from eight to 
eighty years old have been vendors 
in the past. Vegetable growers at 
the market range from professional 
truck farmers to home gardeners 
with a surplus. The only 
requirement for vendors is that they 
register with the market and pay a 
small fee for vending space. 
Vendors are not allowed to sell any 
manufactured goods and any 
processed foods must conform to 
state health regulations.

The unique story 

of three outsiders 

who steal their way 

into the most elegant 

and dangerous society 

on Earth. 





By Eric Blair 

Seven students from area Junior 
High Schools are currently involved 
in a Federally funded auto repair 
program operating here on campus. 

Utilizing space in the Campus 
Center Parking Garage which has 
been rented from the Student Auto 
Workshop, the five boys and two" 
girls participating in the program 
undertake a variety of repair jobs. 

One of the stuuents in the 
Comprehensive Employment and 
Training Act (CETA) Program, 
Scott Cahill, 15, boasts that they 
can hai^dle almost any sort of 
automotive repair. 

"Tune-ups, brake jobs, mufflers, 
carburetors and tranny pulling are 
all no problem. We're doing a 73 
Duster right now," he stated. 

Cahill admits that he hasn't had 
much previous experience except 
for "changing tires and doing minor 

repairs on my Mom's car." But, a 
qualified mechanic is on hand at all 
times to provide guidance, advice 
and assistance. 

Guy Ross is the program 
supervisor and he coordinates the 
student's activities. "They're 
working thirty-five hour weeks for a 
salary of about eighty dollars," said 

He continued, "We're charging 
about five dollars per hour for any 
work we do. That goes right back 
into the program. Our rates are 
cheaper than anyone else even 
though we may take longer." 

The extra time spent upon the 
repairs, Ross explained, "is so that 
the kids can learn on the job. 
Customers won't pay for the 

Auto parts are purchased 
through local auto parts stores at a 
reduced price.

Noel blasts the human race, and gets a laugh 

' Malerie Yolen oausina. then hittlno th«m uuith an manv/ nroinHi/^oe =» .u« ^ .. .i __;-i l._ ^^ . . .- .. . ^^ 

By Malerie Yolen 

With his white hair and white 
suit, the man on stage could have 
been mistaken for an elderly good 
humor man - and he most definitely 
was. But Tom Noel was not dishing 
out ice cream. In his one-man 
show, in front of a Campus Center 
Auditorium audience of about 200, 
this Broadway actor was portraying 
one of the greatest humorists in 
American History, Mark Twain. 

The show was entitled "The 
Trouble Begins at 8:00" and for 
about an hour and a half Noel as 
Twain blasted missionaries, 
religion. Frenchmen and the 
damned human race, and gave us 
insights into his childhood and the 
idiosyncrasies of human nature. 

Noel did a good job of presenting 
the dialogue in the Twain style of 
first supplying the audience with 
the substance of a sentence. 

pausing, then hitting them with an 
unexpected ending. 

He talked about his uncle who 
had a saber and used to hide in dark 
corners and stick people through 
with it. He finished this little piece 
of information about his family tree 
with, "he was born humorist." 

As for his cigar smoking, he 
admitted, "I didn't start smoking till 
I was", pause, "eight". "I started 
out smoking a moderate amount", 
pause, "about a hundred a month," 
another pause, "four dollars a 
barrel." It was this type of humor 
and his down-to-earth honesty that 
made Twain so well loved. Who 
else would admit, "I've been an 
author for 35 years and an ass for 
70." And, "I differ from George 
Washington. George cannot tell a 
lie, I can but I won't." 

Being a human. Twain had 
human tendencies. He harbored as 

Green Bay Packers 
to leave tomorrow 

By Laurie Wood 

This week, the Green Bay 
Packers are visiting Amherst. 
They'll remain in the area until 
tomorrow, having arrived here early 
Monday morning. 

The Packers had a game with the 
New England Patriots last Sunday 
at Schafer Stadium which they 
narrowly won by a score of 16-14. 
After a team workout on Monday, 
Head Coach Bart Staar said to 
reporters, "We were happy to win 
against a team ot that caliber," in 
refering to the Monday game. 

When asked what his reaction 
^as to the six sacks upon quar- 
terback Carlos Brown, that oc- 
curred during the Sunday game, 
Staar was mostly unconcerned and 
•said that such things are inevitable 
and little can be done about them. 

It's getting near the end of 
preseason and all the National 
League Football teams will have to 
concentrate upon getting their 
clubs into top condition and cutting 
their rosters down to the limit. 

Staar admitted that all areas of 
offense and defense need work, but 
that the defensive and secondary 
lines are going extremely well. He 
stated, in referring to the cuts that 
still have to be made, "It's going to 
be a tough decision in all areas." 

After having been used to 
hosting the Patriots in summers 
past, the townspeople of UMass 
and Amherst seemed more than 
happy to see the Packers in the 
area. On Monday afternoon, during 
the team's 3-5 p.m. practice, 
spectators and autograph seekers 
flooded the fields across from 
Southwest to view the events.

many prejudices as the next man, 
perhaps a bit more, and among his 
peeves were the French whom he* 
felt were morally loose. "I love the 
French people.... Egalite, Liberte, 
Fraternite Adulture." 

He was also not too 
missionaries. He spoke 
natives who had benefited from the 
missionary's stay. "After the feast 

hot on 
of the 

they said he was a tender 
missionary and wished they had 
some more of him." 

Tom Noel played the piano a bit, 
deviating from Twain's man- 
nerisms. Noel was too cheerful on 
the keys, radiating his own per- 
sonality, while Twain'i easy-going 
character was concentrated in the 
unmusical dialogue. 

Tom Noel carried off the Mark 
Twain dialogue well. His timing was 
good and the jokes were timeless. 
Actually, the dialogue was not so 
much timeless as it is insightful into 
aspects of humai nature that will 
nev«r h« outdated. 

"I can't think of anything else to 
say," pause, "at least - anything 
that's decent."
